When I was born in December 1969, there was so much
snow that my parents couldn´t drive me home from hospital.When I was 8 months old, my instincts told me to
stop crawling and I started to walk.
When I was 2 years old, I started skiing in our garden.
When I was 12 years old, my father cut my skateboard
in two because I caused a car accident.
When I was 16 years old, I bought my first snowboard.
Now I`m a bit older and I´m still totally addicted to snowboarding!

Born in 1978 it took me not too long to start to learn how to ski in Paltinis, 25 km from Sibiu, where Martin recently buildt his new resort Arena Platos. I attended the ski club of Sibiu and became a racer. I had the pleasure to ski some months in the USA aswell, even during Ceausescus times. In 2008 I became a mountainguide of the romanian mountainguide association, and finally became a teacher in their team. I am responsible for Skiing and wintersports in the AGMR. When Martin and Bezi started Heliskiromania in the carpaths i was certainly happy to be able to ski these remote peaks. I am the one you speak to when you call the contact phone and i answer your emails. hope to see you soon in carpathian powderland!
