I am a software developer working for Microsoft in Cambridge, UK. I am working on Visual Studio.

I originally come from Bucharest, Romania, where I did my studies (BS in Computer Science and Engineering and MS in IT Project Management) and started my career (I’ve been developing for since 2006 in Bucharest). After that I moved to Paris, France where I worked for 2 years for Microsoft developing various projects around entertainment - music, video and xbox.

I’ve worked on quite a few projects and came to love industry programming with all it’s ups and downs, weird processes (come on, find a better name for scrum!) and unusual software bugs.

I’ve been involved in training quite a lot, starting from assistant professor at the university and then doing crash courses in programming for manual testers that wanted to move up. My long term career goal is teaching computer science at an university.

I like discovering things, so you’ll often find me reading some on some research project, new methodology (although those are mostly boring) or doing a proof of concept.
