Location: Bucharest, Romania
Date of Birth: 12th July 1984
Been playing guitar since: 1998

I am a guitar and music addict, and I’ve been dealing with music in one way or another, since I was 7-8 years old and I was singing in my bathtub. I discovered the guitar in 1998, and started treating it with proper respect in 2004. I am almost completely self taught, and part of my actual knowledge is based on what I’ve “stolen” from other guitarists around me through the years.

I had my first band experience in 2001 and since then, I’ve been constantly learning what teamwork really means and the other things (boy, aren’t they a nasty bunch) which come along with playing in a band.

Right now, I am playing in two bands, both of them having similar characteristics: mean, low tuned, catchy (hopefuly enough), sensitive and full of atittude – the only difference consists in complexity. I also play in a project in which several guitarists and a philharmonic orchestra perform famous classical pieces of music, along with renditions of famous rock tunes.

I love low tuned guitars, especially baritones - I am currently using PRS Mike Mushok baritone and a PRS Paul Allender for the band work, and an Ibanez JEM 777SK for solo/ personal stuff. I keep listening to huge ammounts of diverse music, because I believe that music doesn’t divide itself into styles actually. In the end, it’s all about making us feel something, or not – we’re the only ones making the endless classifications.

My idea consists of being a part in the flow of knowledge: receive information and pass it onwards, in a better form if possible. As the saying goes: ‘You live, you learn’. Combine your imagination, soul, hands and willpower, and you might become the next wonder out there!

Playing and Influences
Sevendust, Killswitch Engage, Alter Bridge, Nickelback, Karnivool, Dead Letter Circus, Andy Timmons, Steve Lukather, Guthrie Govan, Steve Vai, Jerry Donahue, Clint Lowery, Antonio Vivaldi, W.A. Mozart, and the list could go on... and on... and on :)

At GMC
I am looking forward to bringing my contribution to a community where music is the universal language, and having the possibility to interact with so many great people who are here for the same purpose: serving our lady, Music :)
