Culture/ Media/ Social/ Education
Passionate about culture and the beauty of creativity, I turn my deep belief in transforming the society through art and knowledge into communication projects, as well as editorial contributions to the Romanian media.
I guide my work endeavors and commitment by the words of one of the greatest musicians of all times, Leonard Bernstein: "Art cannot change events. But it can change people. Because people are changed by art, they then act in a way that may affect the course of events - by the way they vote, they behave, the way they think."
Previously of joining OMA Vision team in March 2012, I've been a Culture Journalist for Adevarul National Daily Newspaper for more than three years.
Working as a journalist specialized in the cultural field opened for me the door to amazing opportunities - I had the chance to meet and interview many international personalities, among whom I can proudly mention: Amos Oz, Pascal Bruckner, Irvine Welsh, Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt, Will Self, Jonathan Coe, James Meek, Jonathan Safran Foer, Nicole Krauss, Jose Luis Peixoto, Mischa Maisky, Hélène Grimaud, and Angela Gheorghiu.
In communication, my journalistic background represents a strong point as I use my knowledge to create media connections, relations and PR from this double-perspective.
Besides journalism, I've also been involved in Cultural Projects Administration, as part of the team that coordinated key events such as the National Theatre Festival in Bucharest, B-FIT in the Street and several others.
With a Bachelor Degree in Journalism and Communication, as well as a Master Degree in Audiovisual Communication at Universidad Complutense, Madrid, Spain, I've also been the recipient of a Scholarship in Cultural Diplomacy granted by The Romanian Cultural Institute in London (in June, 2012). In this capacity I was directly involved in promoting the Romanian Events organized during the Cultural Olympiad in London, which took place along with the Olympic Games.
My activity at OMA Vision revolves around major cultural projects - such as George Enescu International Festival and Competition, the first recital of famous pianist Valentina Lisitsa in Romania, InnerSound New Arts Festival, as well as social and educational campaigns and topics.
I develop my passion for culture through my contributions for Adevarul Newspaper and Esquire Magazine and share cultural insights and recommendations on my personal Facebook Page as well.
