I was born in Romania, alas I am not a vampire.

In 1999, I graduated Saint Sava, the most prestigious high school in Bucharest. Four years later I got my Computer Science degree from West University of Timisoara. I then went on to get a Masters degree in A.I. before emigrating to the best place on (middle) Earth: Wellington, New Zealand.

I am the proud father of two amazing girls and I am a very lucky and grateful husband. My dog (a golden lab) completes my immediate family.

I am the Head of Mobile at Trade Me, and I am the co-founder of Improved. About once every month I organise Cocoaheads Wellington and GDG Wellington.

I also co-host the Keep in Touch podcast where I talk about technology, family life, and the balance between them.
