I am Creative Director currently working at McCann WorldGroup in Bucharest. My campaigns won pitches, creativity and effectiveness awards. But more importantly, they solved real business problems.
If you’ve only got 30 more seconds for this page, here’s the short version:
• I’ve created a Coca-Cola global campaign that made it all the way to China and the US.
• My work was acknowledged in international competitions like the Cannes Lions, LIA, Clio, Eurobest and others.
• The Ford work made headlines around the world.
2020 – now Creative Director at McCann WorldGroup Bucharest
In January 2020 I started a new job alongside old friends, at McCann WorldGroup. The Bucharest based agency has always been known to create innovative, non-traditional ideas that made headlines around the world. And my role here is to bring this tradition even further, on multiple clients, in multiple areas of the business.
2019 – 2020 Associate Creative Director at GTB Ogilvy London
For 1 year I managed the creative department of GTB, the agency of record for Ford, and reported directly to the Global Chief Creative Officer.
Our campaigns have received attention beyond our audience, generating TV news and press articles around the globe, alongside sparking social media conversations. And we’ve won the agency’s first D&AD award.
2018 – 2019 Senior Copywriter at GTB Ogilvy London
I worked as a Senior Copywriter for one year before getting promoted to ACD. Here we created campaigns for the European market. During this time, we launched Interventions, a content series that’s made headlines around the world.
2017 – 2018 Senior Copywriter at McCann London & EMEA / Freelancer
I’ve spent a few months working on Xbox, MasterCard and Coca-Cola. Here I had my first contact with the UK advertising world.
2012 – 2017 Senior Copywriter at McCann Bucharest
I’ve worked at one of the most awarded agencies in Central and Eastern Europe, famous for campaigns like American Rom, awarded with Grand Prix and Titanium.
I’ve started here adapting campaigns for Coca-Cola and grew the account and client relationship for years. Hundreds of ideas and presentations later, we created the Coca-Cola Festival Bottle, which became a global campaign.
I was always interested in briefs for other brands. My Go Mono work for Radio21 and Pay with Blood for Untold Festival were awarded in Cannes, LIA and other festivals.
2007 – 2011 Writer at Top Gear Magazine Romania
I was driving the newest cars in amazing places around the world and writing about it in the local Top Gear magazine. Not bad at all. And it was so much more than that. I’ve also translated thousands of articles from the English version of the magazine, which was an amazing exercise for a young writer. While doing this, I understood story, humour and structure.
