Yum, Romanian plums...


Born in a charming little town in Romania, I moved to Vancouver, Canada in 1995 with my family. I'm currently residing in sunny California.

Writing + Reading Both have been passions of mine since I learned English at a young age. Some books I've enjoyed, recently read, or consider good reference are:
* Happiness (TM) - Will Fergusen
* Against the Current: Selected Writings 1939-1996 - Pierre Elliott Trudeau
* Manualul Razboinicului Luminii - Paulo Coelho
* The Alchemist - Paulo Coelho
* the Jane Austen and Charlotte Bronte books
* Sophie's World - Jostein Gaarder
* The Predictors - Thomas A. Bass

Other: Some of my more sporadic hobbies are movie-collecting, guitar, Romanian crepe-making, and swimming.
