'm a dedicated development lead and trainer at Endava, where I lead the development of a project with worldwide installations.

I work as a software developer and trainer since 2007. It is my belief that in software development it’s essential to not only deliver high-quality software but also share knowledge and help others to up-skill. These believes have driven me to design and teach courses related to Java technologies and deliver presentations and workshops.

As a Java instructor, I delivered thousands of hours of trainings to 3000+ students in the past 10 years, recently being involved in courses at the Mathematics and Informatics Faculty of Bucharest University.

During the previous couple of years, I delivered presentations, tutorials, and workshops at different important events around the world: in Bucharest, New York, San Francisco, Warsaw, Belgrad, Berlin, and many more.

To keep in touch with the community I also started a YouTube channel dedicated to Java and adjacent technologies where he presents topics for beginner to advanced developers.

Recently, I released together with Manning Publications the book “Spring Security In Action”, and I am currently working on my second book, "Spring Quickly".

Outside of work, I am passionate about traveling, music, and scuba diving.
