I’m a story teller, geek, blogger, father, runner, light seeker. Not necessarily in that order. I also think happiness is a process, not a goal.

In this space I help people to become more productive, to get healthy habits (like waking up early), to start their own business or to run marathons and ultra-marathons.

Ultimately, I try to live a better life, keep away from screwing up and be always ready to start fresh.

If you want to know more, you can go straight to the blog.  (I’m also writing in Romanian, every now and then, here).

What's Inside, You Asked?

Personal Development

We’re social animals. We do need other people in our lives. We crave to relate. Sometimes the dynamic of these relationships gets weird. And fascinating.

Online Business

I started my first online business before Google (and successfully sold it 9 years later). And I still love being in the online business, growing, learning, sharing.


A few years after starting this blog, I also started to run. I am now a marathoner ultra-marathoner, enjoying races longer than 100km. Or more.


Being an entrepreneur is a tough thing nowadays, so I had to learn how not get burned out. And I event invented my own productivity framework.

Money & Wealth

Yes, I do think money plays an important role in our lives. Hence, the need to properly relate to this thing. Which I consider to be a form of energy.

Pujas And Patching – And Why They Work

As I already wrote in the first post of these series, the concept of Karma is at the same time simpler, but more inclusive than the popular Western belief "justice shall be made". There is no external judge, applying some…

Buddhism For Geeks – Initial Commit

Buddhism For Geeks – Initial Commit

5 years ago I started to follow Buddhism as a way of living. I don’t consider it a religion, so I’m not identifying as a “Buddhist”. There are more formalized ways to embrace this lifestyle, like taking vows and joining…
