I have worked in many different fields and gained specific and transferable skills, which helped me become a very versatile and flexible person.
Since 2006 I have been active in the film and television industry, mainly as an assistant to a producer at 42 Km Film (Bucharest, Romania), an art house company that produces films praised in festivals all over the world.
In the UK I have been involved in a number of documentary projects as an associate producer.
Over the past few years I have been writing two feature screenplays, both of them selected for and developed in international workshops:
‘Landscape with Camel and Bear’, a psydramedy who received 2nd Best Script Award at Manaki Brothers Script Corner, Macedonia 2012, and was further developed at MiniMidpoint script development workshop, Prague 2013.
My latest project is ‘The Seventy Men in My Life’, an offbeat romcom set in present day London. The project was selected for and developed at Film TEEP Artviva Co-production Training Program, Bucharest May 2016.

He talks of Christianity as a dominant religion that has eradicated ancient cultures and beliefs forcing them to convert to Christianity. So long ago the Crusades in the Middle East set the seal on present day attitudes in those countries today. How do we get beyond the past mistakes that are burned into history? How do we move on and embrace an open world of spirituality?
