Hello! Thank you for stumbling upon my story and for giving it some of your time. 

I lived an important part of my life in Chicago and the rest elsewhere, from Scotland to Romania. I graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering, which eventually led to a career in renewable energy. In the midst of this career, in August 2012, I decided to leave and dedicate some time to my passions: traveling, working to benefit the environment, practicing photography, watching wildlife and exploring the great outdoors. Otherwise, I am a huge admirer of Sir David Attenborough and hold a special place in my heart for Aldo Leopold and Edward Abbey's writings. 

Nowadays I moved to Charlottesville, VA with my wife, Andreea, and I'm working in renewable energy once again. But the thirst for exploring will forever be there.
