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.

Business/ Corporate/ European Affairs

 

The best stories are the real ones, those rooted in facts and told the right way. I believe in the incredible power of narrative. Any good story needs strong arguments. So do all communication projects that, at the core, are stories to tell. It is thrilling that through my work I can contribute to revealing and developing the content behind a project. Helping others - clients, partners, supporters - to understand a project goes beyond marketing and branding, it becomes meaning. This is what drives my daily work.

 

I have built a significant academic and professional background and a solid theoretical and practical experience in Romania and abroad. My assignments covered both the public and the private sector. As a result, I bring a concrete set of skills to the job when it comes to developing meaningful narratives.

 

Before joining the OMA Vision team, I was Corporate Communication Director for a private Romanian company acting in the energy sector. My focus was on setting up the internal and external corporate Communication Strategy at a time of organisational change for the company.

 

Between 2009 and 2011 I was the Foreign and European Affairs Advisor to the President of the Romanian Senate. My responsibilities included implementing the foreign policy strategy and external agenda for the President of the Senate; planning and coordinating official visits abroad; speech-writing on foreign affairs issues; organising public debates and hearings on European and international topics. In this capacity, I contributed to the creation of the mechanism allowing the Romanian Senate to participate in the process of surveillance and elaboration of the European legislation, by engaging the consistent knowledge of European institutional framework acquired during my academic experience in Brussels.

 

My education includes a Master in European Studies (from 2007 to 2009) at the European Studies Institute (UCL & FUSL - Brussels); with a Research Fellowship at the MGIMO University (Moscow); and a BA in Political Science with a Minor in Information and Communication at UCL (Belgium).

 

In January 2014 I joined OMA Vision. My competences and work ethics are aligned with those of OMA Vision team's. Being comfortable in handling a diversity of contents, I'm currently in charge with developing the corporate and business related projects, in economic, agriculture, legal affairs, and energy areas.

 

I follow closely European affairs topics and international relations and often share interesting analysis and reports on my Facebook page.

 

I speak fluent French and English and have a basic command of Spanish.

Business Operations/ Marketing & Communication

 

A self-disciplined intuitive thinker with an education and over two decades' experience in International Business Development and Marketing-Communications, I know full well today how vital it is to advance relationships in professional life through affect, connection and collaboration, and much less through persuasion and influence.


Prior to joining OMA Vision, I've built partnerships, assisted clients with their communication needs, and worked with companies to grow their business, both in the USA and Europe, within niche industries such as fashion, luxury, cultural and military.


From industrial and military companies in Israel, South-Korea, and the USA, to European famous fashion designers and houses; from Romanian startups grown into established companies, to US luxury businesses and brands benefiting from our creative collaboration, I've learned along the way two essential professional lessons: first - that only by speaking out against the status quo one may actually create change; and second - that empathy is not a weakness, it's rather a powerful communication tool.


Within the past few years my role has morphed into something even more interesting, best to be described as a ‘creative project manager'. In this role, the one I play at OMA Vision as well, not only do I get to assist with the ideation of new projects - be they business, marketing or cultural, I get to contribute hands-on to their development and execution, and work closely with the team to ensure we achieve all our goals.


Having a way with words gives me the opportunity to connect with the world also through my freelance writing. One of these labors of love is writing for Westlake Malibu Lifestyle Magazine, California, as their Fashion Editor, since 2008.

CSR / Technology / Culture / Business

 

They say we are only as good as the promises we keep and I couldn't agree more. I believe that being an effective communicator implies, first of all, the capacity to keep all our promises and to stay true to the messages we choose to share with the audience. At the same time, with technology's increasing power over our communication nowadays, we have to be wise and, as Sherry Turkle says, to „begin to measure the success of devices not by how much time consumers spend on them, but by whether it is time well spent". It is, after all, a discussion about the quality and beauty of our conversations and the way we, the communicators, can use technology to our audiences benefit - both subjects I care about deeply and which I explore every day in my professional life.

 

I joined OMA VISION in 2016 following this passion and trying to direct it towards improving people's lives and generating societal change from within. I keep an eye open on corporate social responsibility complex issues, and on how to best use technology and communication to reclaim meaningful conversations between people and bring them unspoiled into the relevant spotlight.

 

My previous work as the CSR Project Manager for a telecommunication corporation, where I coordinated, among other projects, a national program using mobile communication technologies to find solutions to some of the most urgent and difficult health issues in our society, enriched my experience of different communities and broadened my knowledge about the ways companies can support and empower people to live better lives.

 

From my first encounter with communication a decade ago, as a copywriter for an advertising agency in Bucharest, I‘ve come a long way. Part of this formative journey was also joining the team of an architecture magazine, working for the Bucharest Architecture Biennial 2010, and launching the first architecture festival in Romania.

 

I have a Bachelor Degree in Communications and Public Relations from The National School of Political Sciences and a Master Degree in Performance, Multimedia, Society from the University of Bucharest. Recently I completed the "Foreign Policy and Diplomacy" course at the Romanian Diplomatic Institute and obtained the Sustainability Reporting (GRI G4) Certificate offered by Global Reporting Initiative and Centre for Sustainability and Excellence (CSE).
