My origins are from that special place in Europe where the East and the West collide, the Republic of Moldova. I specialized early on in Cinematography after finishing my studies in different countries around Europe, being tutored by Stefan Chiupek, Christian Berger, Vadim Yusov, and Rafi Pitts.

 

I enjoy shooting Fiction Films, TV Series, Documentaries, and other types of creative videos. This allows me to discover and enrich my cinematic language, deepen my knowledge of light, and test new ways of visual expression in different mediums.

 

When I met director Andrey A. Eshpay he invited me to Moscow to work on my feature debut “Russian Performance”. The visual style I created for this movie was inspired by the work and life of Jackson Pollock. By working on this project I developed a unique way of relating with the characters, a special bond between the camera and the actors, giving them total freedom in my compositions. After the debut, more projects followed: TV Series, Documentaries, and Fiction Films.

 

To continue my career I relocated to Bucharest for a new collaboration with director Alecu Solomon for his latest documentary Tarzan’s Testicles, a visual dialogue between humans and monkeys - a metaphor for the aging process. My portfolio was enriched also by working with talented directors like Ioana Păun, Raluca R. Gorgos, Cristian Pascariu, Ion Aramă, and others.

Since 2018 I've become a member of the European Film Academy.
