I grew up in Luanda (Angola), Frankfurt (Germany), Istanbul (Turkey) and Cairo (Egypt) - today my hometown is Berlin (Germany). I have also been studying in the US, Latin America and France...


I'd like to contribute to wikipedia and share my expertise in the fields of international media industries.


Just started the article on The Association of Commercial Television in Europe. Happy to receive your feedback :-)

Also started Cable & Satellite Broadcasting Association of Asia. Again happy to receive your human feedback ;-)

Now added some valid global TV market data to Television and a couple of other TV related articles :-)

Reviewed International Television Expert Group and cleaned up some articles, wikilinks and redirect issues around Interactive Television.

Now hoping to contribute with an international view and some references to Television program.
