When I was 6, I had a dream: I wanted to become a programmer. Since then, I’ve made everything I could towards that goal.

Now here I am, making my dream a reality.

My journey so far

    Humble beginnings

    The dream

    I saw a computer for the first time when my childhood friend got one for his birthday. I was instantly mesmerised by it. I dreamed about becoming a programmer one day.

    High School

    The first steps

    My actual journey into programming began during high school, where I wrote my first lines of code in ANSI C.

    During these years, the most notable projects I have worked on were a hangman game and a battleships-like game playable against an AI.

    Halcyon Mobile

    While working at Halcyon Mobile, I have the pleasure of working along with other talented iOS developers, of exploring and sharing new programming ideas every day, through which I'm able to constantly deepen my knowledge of both iOS development and software engineering.

    I was also able to experience working remotely for an extended period of time.

  • April 2016

    XV. Scientific Student Conference

    Attended the annual XV. Scientific Student Conference in the field of Computer Science and Software Development with a project titled Automated Supervision of Vulnerable People's Health, which was awarded a special prize for the most innovative project.

  • June 2016

    Graduation

    Graduated B.Sc. in Computer Engineering with honours.
  • July 2016

    Relocating for work

    After graduation, I was ready to experience what the world has to offer, so I began by relocating to Cluj-Napoca, dubbed by some as the Silicon Valley of Eastern Europe.

Get in touch

My journey began in Târgu-Mureș, Romania, but I recently relocated to Cluj-Napoca, Romania.

While I'm currently employed, I'm curious by nature, so I'm always looking forward to the new opportunities either through remote work or relocation to Europe or North America.
