    Freelance: Upwork, Elance, oDesk

    Active in the Design & Multimedia category on Elance and oDesk, I edited various videos and photos, I created promotional videos using sounds, pictures and text either provided or researched by me online and I also created animated intros and outros for businesses and individuals. Therefore I have gained a lot of knowledge of Video Editing & Animation software such as Final Cut Pro X, Motion 5, Premiere Pro, After Effects, as well as Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign and more. Since 2015 I have started to specialise in the Colouring aspect of Post Production, which involves a strong grasp of colour theory and psychology, a good sense of balance and equilibrium and an advanced technical skill of video formats, codecs, colour spaces and softwares such as DaVinci Resolve, Colourista or Speedgrade.

  • Studio TechnicianApril 2007 - November 2010

    Pro TV

    For 3 and a half years I was active in studio broadcasting for the leading TV network in Romania doing technical jobs as well as creative ones. Part of the Media Pro Studios and of the global CMI network this job offered me vast experience in television and film production, developing a good set of communicative skills in this field of work. Occasionally I was commissioned to work outside the city and to duties outside my field of work supplying very often for other tasks such as DOP, Camera Operator, Sound Engineer, Grip, Rig, Dolly & Crane, Assistant Director or Field Technician.

    We Play Wax

    A community for vinyl fetishists, wax lovers and plastic enthusiasts, We Play Wax is the culmination of almost 15 years of constantly listening, collecting, researching and curating the best underground dance music. It is my ultimate gift to all those few people out there whose senses can only be touched through music and nothing else. It is made purely out of passion and probably my greatest achievement to this date.

  • Owner, Editor, Manager, JournalistDecember 2007 - June 2011

    Electrocutare

    Single handedly ran the most successful electronic music blog in Romania between 2007 and 2011 focusing on house, techno and electro music. Electrocutare featured in-depth artist, labels and releases reviews, event promoting and organising and a popular podcast series which can still be streamed on Mixcloud. It was shut down due to lack of funds, time and declining interest from the local community. Although the publishing language switched from Romanian to English, outside distractions, lack of media partner and sponsorship interest and the emerging new house scene contributed to the final decision.
