I was born and raised in Brasov, but I came in Bucharest at the University and stayed a bit longer than I planned. After finishing my degree (in Philosophy), I decided I wanted to know more about people than ideas, at least for a while, so I went into advertising. After a short internship at Ogilvy&Mather, I worked as a copywriter at two small advertising agencies. However, even if I really like copy-writing, I wouldn't do the job anymore if it didn't involve at least a little bit of social media. I'm an internet addict, and proud of it. At the moment I am a freelance collaborator at the British Council Bucharest, and I'm looking for a more stable job, preferably involving social networks. In my free time I take photos, I write, I watch movies, and I volunteer. Besides my work for TED, I also do some volunteering for The Ratiu Foundation and for Greenpeace Romania.
Photography, Movies, Rock'n'roll and I really want to run a Marathon. Preferably in London. What can I say, I like running, but I like London even more. =)
Anything that interests you. I'm extremely curious and I love learning new things.
I've tried to remember how I came to discover TED. But no matter how hard I try, I have no recollection of that particular moment. However, I can't forget the weeks that followed. The fervor, the enthusiasm, the long hours of doing nothing but watch this, and that, and then the laughing, the crying and the feeling of great discoveries happening right here, right now. TED became an important part of my life, I told everyone about it, and apparently so did everyone else, because no one I know is a TED virgin anymore. And after I fell in love with the project, I decided I want us to be together forever, so I became a TED translator. And we lived happily ever after. The end.
