I currently work as a Game Developer in Timișoara/România working in Unity3D & Unreal Engine. I’m the link between programmers & artists doing level design, level editing & implementation of various mechanics based on a design document.
As a freelancer I occasionally do game design & web development. I started up doing websites back in 2001 so I still have some of my old clients giving me odd jobs. Game Design is my main passion so I pursue that path whenever I have time. Ever since I was a little boy I was dreaming of making my own games.
Another side project of mine is my YouTube Channel where I make videos about Video Games, Unity Tutorials, etc. I started the GamerPET project back in 2013.
2006 – 2015 ; Freelancer – Web Developer, SEO, Online Forums, Online Marketing
I still do occasional web development work but I don’t fully pursue it. After finishing High School in 2006 web development was my “full time job”. I started learning HTML back in 2001 after finding a software called Arachnophilia on an XtremPC CD. Finding that software was a “wow” moment for me thinking “so this is how you do web pages”. Since then I always had various websites. In 2004 I started learning PHP & MySQL which allowed me in 2006 to land my first “paid website job”. That inspired me to start doing freelance so… that’s how it all began.
I started working on GetAFreelancer having a lot of web development jobs. Setting up forums, integrating vBulletin with some other PHP system, upgrading about 50 wordpress website after they got hacked and the host closed the client’s hosting, logos and in general whatever it was needed. This is my GetAFreelancer profile.
2010 – 2011 ; sc2ro – Starcraft 2 Romanian Community
Right after finishing college I was really into media, video editing, photography and this kind of stuff. I was really looking for a project to apply some of the skills that I learned (mostly by myself). Starcraft 2 was preparing for launch in August 2010 and a member (Archaeus) from the CG Forum wanted to organize Starcraft 2 tournaments. That’s when I came in to help. Over a period of 1 and a half year I organized and live casted Starcraft 2 tournaments. This became a full time job. In this time I had over 30 organized tournaments and 2 full time leagues. All my tournaments & leagues were live casted in Romanian and sometimes in English.
2002 – 2007 ; RO-Hattrick Forum
When I was still exporing the web and how to create web pages I discovered forums. After all I was on them all the time. Back in August 2002 I started playing an online football manager game called Hattrick. I still remember seeing the in-game forum… it was a “tree based” reply system. A total mess! I decided to create the “Romanian Hattrick Forum” (RO-Hattrick) which actually caught on! It was a huge succes! In 2007 when I closed the forum we had 10.159 members & 580.707 posts! We started to organize anual parties that gathered more than 50 participants all over the country!
