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 writer and I'm learning to code. In my free time I take photos, I write, I watch movies, and I volunteer.

My TED story
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.
