a few words

about me

Before my dive into the digital world, I proudly served in the Romanian military. My tenure included graduating from a military high school and Land Forces Academy, earning my master's degree, and managing all the official social media platforms for the Romanian military alongside a small team.

A transformative deployment to Afghanistan as a PR officer was a pivotal point in my life. The lessons learned and perspectives gained during those seven intense months led me to reevaluate my path.

Seeking change and fresh beginnings, I moved to the U.S. and channeled my creativity into digital art, working as a freelance illustrator and capturing stories and emotions through my art.

In January 2023, I embarked on a self-taught journey into web development. Recognizing the need for technical expertise in community initiatives, I volunteered with Code for Hawaii, a brigade of Code for America, to leverage my newfound skills on civic projects.

This journey of self-growth took another exciting turn when I interned at an innovative startup, where I had the privilege to be mentored by a seasoned developer with a rich 24-year tenure at Microsoft.

I'm excited to merge my unique blend of military discipline, creative flair, and technical acumen to create impactful digital solutions.
