The magic of the mountain has always attracted him. There he learned that he lives in a harmonious universe where the stars showed him the way and the sun revealed the beauty of flowers. And it was there that he learned that the effort never goes unrewarded. After a while, in which he managed to climb almost all the massifs in Romania, he started to look at the mountains around, so it is that in 2007, he decided to go to the Alps. That was the moment when he realized that others have beautiful mountains too. Then he continued, mathematically, every year, to climb peaks over 4000m in the Alps but also to explore other mountains like: Tatra, Durmitor, Atlas, Olimp and Himalayas.
Since he loved being into mountains the step towards guidance then came naturally. In 2015 he decided to follow a mountain guide course, more exactly International Mountain Leader.
