Who am I?

I am a Romanian journalist living in Dublin, Ireland and I have been a part of the local and international cultural press for the last 8 years. During this time, I wrote and handled concert photography duties for online and print publications such as SUNETE, Metropotam.ro and FHM. 

I had the fortune of meeting and interviewing great international artists such as Devin Townsend, Riverside, Al Di Meola, Paul Gilbert, Ian Hill of Judas Priest, Anathema, Beth Hart, Andy Jackson (Pink Floyd / David Gilmour's studio engineer), Peter Freestone (Freddie Mercury's personal assistant) & many more. My writing work also includes concert, festival and album reviews, along with extensive editorial pieces about various bands and solo artists chosen for SUNETE cover stories.

As a concert photographer, I had the honor of capturing both local and international live performances of artists such as Billy Joel, Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets, Sting, Demi Lovato, Sam Smith, Foo Fighters, Seal, Steven Wilson, Mumford&Sons, Dream Theater, Maroon 5, Queen + Adam Lambert, Buena Vista Social Club, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Scorpions, The Hollywood Vampires, Muse, SIA & many more. 

I am an accredited photographer for festivals such as Sziget Festival (Budapest, Hungary), Nova Rock (Nickelsdorf, Austria), Lollapalooza (Berlin, Germany), Beatyard (Dublin, Ireland), B'estfest (Bucharest, Romania), Rock the City (Bucharest, Romania), SummerWell (Bucharest, Romania),  Artmania (Sibiu, R & many more. I have also spent almost one year (various events in 2016 and 2017) as a guest photographer for Sofar Sounds Bucharest.

I am also a founding member of the Romanian Concert Photographer's Association (Asociația fotografilor de concerte - #find_us).

Currently, I am a concert photographer for GoldenPlec Ireland, while maintaining the role of editor and concert photographer for SUNETE (the only Romanian music magazine available in print). 

Cine sunt eu?

Mi-am petrecut ultimii opt ani în zona culturală, scriind materiale şi fotografiind pentru platforme online sau print ca SUNETE, Metropotam.ro sau FHM. Aventura mea ca jurnalist cultural continuă, din Decembrie 2017, în Dublin, Irlanda.

De-a lungul acestor ani, am avut norocul să cunosc şi intervievez artişti ca Devin Townsend, Riverside, Al Di Meola, Paul Gilbert, Ian Hill (Judas Priest), Anathema, Beth Hart, Andy Jackson (inginerul de studio pentru Pink Floyd / David Gilmour), Peter Freestone (asistentul personal al lui Freddie Mercury) & mulţi alţii. În ce priveşte componenta editorială, vă pot spune că am scris cronici de festival, concert şi album precum şi materiale legate de diverşi artişti solo ori trupe ce au fost alese pentru cover story SUNETE. 

În calitate de fotograf de concert, am avut onoarea de a captura atât evenimente locale cât şi internaţionale. Printre artiştii fotografiaţi se numără Billy Joel, Nick Mason's Saucerful of Secrets, Demi Lovato, Sam Smith, Foo Fighters, Seal, Steven Wilson, Mumford&Sons, Dream Theater, Maroon 5, Queen + Adam Lambert, Buena Vista Social Club, Deep Purple, Iron Maiden, Scorpions, The Hollywood Vampires, Muse, SIA & mulţi alţii.

De asemenea, sunt fotograf acreditat la festivaluri precum Nova Rock Austria, Lollapalooza Berlin, B'estfest, Rock the City, SummerWell, Artmania Sibiu, etc.

Vreme de aproape un an (in perioada 2016-2017), am avut rolul de guest photographer pentru Sofar Sounds Bucharest.

De asemenea, activez ca membru fondator în Asociaţia fotografilor de concerte - #find_us.

La acest moment sunt editor şi fotograf de concert al revistei SUNETE (singura revistă de muzică din România cu apariţie în print), dar şi fotograf de concert pentru publicaţia/website-ul irlandez de muzică GoldenPlec.
