I’m a Software Engineer and UX/UI Designer living currently in Chisinau, Moldova. I’ve studied Web Development & Informatics and now I’m studying business at UBB in Cluj-Napoca. I was introduced to computers from an early age and since then it became my passion. Being driven by curiosity, I got into design, programming and others IT areas that sparked my interest. Moreover, there are a lot of things that I am passionate about, such as music, math, meditating, artificial intelligence, books, health & performance optimization ( and frankly optimization of any sort really ), photography, investing and personal development. I think that anything can be achieved with hard work, perseverance, ambition & determination and I strongly believe that, on a personal level, change starts from within.
