Currently working at antoni Berlin (European lead agency for the car division of Mercedes-Benz), as part of a multidisciplinary creative duo, together with my partner Rodrigo Bardin.

This is the short story: creative technologist, entrepreneur, concepting, prototyping, raspberrypi, arduino, microsoft kinect hackathon 2nd place, dutch open hackathon special mention, 2x fwa awards, global clients: tommy hilfiger, mini, hermes, mercedes-benz, tedx speaker, entrepreneurial event speaker, aspiring documentary maker, book documentary, 3 and half foreign languages.

This is the long story: 

I graduated in E-Concept development at EAL Academy in Odense, Denmark. After interning for design studio Pulpolab & co-creators of Typeform in Barcelona and later for Converse EMEA in Amsterdam, I went on to the top digital agency Artegence in Warsaw, Poland, where I worked for nearly one year and a half as a front-end developer (campaigns and a custom made internet banking platform). 

My next step was to move again in Amsterdam and take a new position of Creative Technologist at AKQA. 

I balanced my day job with personal creative work together with friend designers realizing various project, mostly with a focus on local communities. So I have achieved with my friend Jean Popescu the first (unofficial) mobile app of a football club in Romania and popular projects 1dece and joinhora celebrating the National Day of Romania. Nominated for local digital awards and attention on social media we had the great honour to be invited and speak at TEDxBucharest City 2.0 about our work and involvement in the community. 

I continued my code/creative desire and teamed up with friend illustrator Magda Koźlicka and created a bilingual book for kids that we later produced in limited quantity. 

In 2015 I've decided to start my own socks brand having a passion for pattern socks and being annoyed by the lost ones. After a weekend of concepting with copywriter friend Raluca Popa, I've launched Soseta3 - the premium socks brand where each pack comes with 3-socks, in case one goes missing. 

During 2016 I've decided to take on another passion of mine, film making. So I've enrolled for a 3-months class with Dutch film-maker Juul van der Laan, at CREA department of University of Amsterdam.
