Before becoming a full-time writer and speaker, Calum had a 30-year career in journalism and in business, as a marketer, a strategy consultant and a CEO.  Before that, he studied philosophy at Oxford University, which confirmed his suspicion that the science fiction he had been reading since boyhood is actually philosophy in fancy dress.
