Started clarinet studies at age 11 in Romania. After graduating from George Enescu music high school emigrated to Canada where I enrolled in the music program at Humber College as a Saxophone major in order to play Jazz. After graduation, I continued my classical clarinet studies at the Royal Conservatory and later accepted as a student by Stanley Hasty, one of the greatest clarinet teachers of his time.
My interests encompass more than just music. I have a BASc degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University Of Toronto and Patents granted for transmissions related to the automotive industry. Also for the last 10 years before retirement I have been renovating and developing real estate properties.
