About me

I am a Learning Architect, on a mission to create a new kind of university. I value freedom, courage, kindness and ice cream.

I co-founded The Alternative University – a small (150 students) freedom-centered university in Bucharest, Romania.  “A university RUN by students and ex students. Where there are no qualifications. People direct their own learning. Everyone’s a student and everyone’s a teacher. A place built from the love of learning. A place exuding hope that we — the people — can take control of our destiny.” This is my favourite description made by a friend visiting from abroad.

In 2015, I coordinated the joining of forces for starting Entrepreneurship Academy – a formal university focused on entrepreneurship.

In August 2015, after 12 years of (social) entrepreneurship, I decided to take a break and travel the world in search of inspiration, wisdom and and allies to get my work to the next level. I traveled 22 months non-stop, visited 19 countries and connected with more than 100 projects.

Now I’m writing a book that is the result of this experience.

Nu stiu daca iti mai amintesti, te-am rugat mai demult daca este posibil sa imi imprumuti si mie cartea lui Ken Robinson :) Am tot intrebat-o pe Alina Ciotirnel (am fost in echipa cu ea la HOLA) si nu stia ce sa imi zica. Imi poti spune tu cam pe unde se mai afla si daca va fi disponibila curand? Merci! Mi-as dori mult sa citesc carti ce au ca si continut educatia, daca mai ai vreuna disponibila, i ll be glad to read it!
