10 August 1993 is the date when I was born. I strarted playing music at 7 years in the first grade of the art school from Tulcea in 2000. For 4 years, my instrument was the piano. In december 2000 is the first time when i appeared on the stage playing at an instrument.
In 2004 I started playing classic guitar in the same school, so the first stage appeareance with the guitar was in december 2004. Since then i am playing classical guitar and participating in differents festivals, concerts, etc.
In 2006 i had my first electric guitar. It was something different, i felt this is my future. And it really was. I improoved my skills every week/month/year and I started to have more and more concerts in different projects.
Most important projects I've been into are "Foisorul de Folk" band. I've also been a collaborateur of the band called "Accent".
