Born in Romania, came to US when I was 8 years old. Grew up in North Jersey, and attended Fordham University where I studied finance and business management. Upon graduating, I opened a restaurant that I ran for two years before I delved into real estate and other ventures that gave me the leeway to also take on competing, which I still currently pursue and aspire to take to the highest level I can.
I first competed in the 2012 Atlantic States where I placed 2nd in the open middle-weight division and won overall in the novice category. That gave me the drive and motivation to decide to take bodybuilding to higher levels, continuing to pursue pro status. I continued to place first in every other open middle-weight division I competed in at the local or regional level, and earned 2nd place at the Junior Nationals in 2015. Two years later I won the overall bodybuilding title at the 2017 NPC Easterns and came in stricking distance from earning pro status as well a week later at the NPC Nationals. Ultimately, I aspire to keep pushing until I do achieve the goal of turning pro, upon which I look to pursue being a competitive pro within the 212 division, and if my body and mind allow it, sky is the limit.. and I would attempt the open as well!
