I was born in a European country you may have heard of, called Romania in the year 1988. Living in Romania until the age of 10, my three sisters and I immigrated to the United States in 1998 to reunite with our father after 8 years of separation.
Growing up in Southern California in the city called Garden Grove was a wonderful experience. The warm weather was beautiful and new experiences were plenty and meaningful in my life.
After graduating from Rancho Alamitos High, I had my foundations in photography set by the arts teacher under which I studied. While in California, I was involved in the music scene, being a musician myself and that led to the audio engineering field, which is one of our divisions at CEG. I've had a camera in my hands for many years and always had a natural eye for framing, composition and light- however it wasn't until I moved to Seattle, Washington that I truly began my photographic journey, and expanding into the film making aspect of content creation. Having moved to Washington State, I immediately began working for Microsoft and quickly rose to the rank of lead engineer. I was now involved in all aspects of the content creation and engineering divisions which CEG currently offers – Photography, Film Making, Audio Production and I.T. Engineering. Today, I lead these divisions at CEG and employ the resources and assets of CEG to continue growing, learning and redefining my boundaries as a creative engineer.
In being a perfectionist, I have pursued the betterment of everything I’ve been involved in - I second guessed everything and pondered, constantly, how I could improve it. I still do that and I could confess this notion is likely the most predominant reason for my accomplishments. I believe it is this drive to re-define the status quo that has largely accelerated my exposure to knowledge and experience to levels on par with decades of experience.
I am a creative engineer and as such I always like to break things down to their mechanics and understand their inner workings. I'm never comfortable with a partial understanding or a birds-eye-view of a complex system - I must understand its mechanics, and appreciate its artistic properties.
Officially launching CEG as a Content Creation and Engineering power house in 2014, I have transitioned my role from a part time, amateur photographer/DP/engineer into a full time role with CEG. At CEG I personally head all divisions and all projects have my input in one way or another - my vision for CEG is one of premium quality and I like to ensure that the spirit with which I launched this company is delivered in every product we have.
I am a God fearing man.
In realizing that my faith is at the core of my strengths, I pay homage to my heavenly Father that entrusted me with His gifts and motivated me to be all that I am today. I cannot be foolish to mistake my abilities as exclusively my own, and fully confide in what I believe to be the fact that these talents are but my Father's investments in me, which I regard as the highest privilege. For I fully believe that “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” – Philippians 4:13
