This is a long way from the boy who grew up in communist Romania where waiting in line for food rations was just a fact of life every day. His life circumstances could have been deemed hopeless, but he knew he could control his mind to overcome the adversity, even if it was just within himself.
After the fall of the communist regime, he and his family immigrated to Canada in search of a new life. At the age of fifteen, he relocated to a new country and did not speak the English language, yet he was determined not to let a language barrier become an obstacle.
He was positive and found life lessons in the adversity that society labelled as an unfortunate situation with no resources to assist him in overcoming a stigma that could have destroyed his dreams; yet by controlling his mindset, staying positive, he began to grow surpassing any boundaries. These traits have come to define him, and they continue to support his ongoing growth.
All along, he has been guided by his core values and aspiration to search outside the box - a universal space that will not limit your dreams only propel you to the next level.
He believes that if you only pursue what society expects you to, you will never truly be fulfilled. He has chosen to take ownership of his life by simply chasing happiness.
