Radio work experience: I have been working at the radio since June 1997 (over ten years have passed since then...). So far, I have made more than 2500 programmes for all the national radio stations (Music, Cultural, Tineret (Youth), Actualitati (News)), from feature reports and interviews to complex and live international broadcasts. As a matter of fact, I have experimented (and studied thoroughly) all the radio journalistic styles.
My programmes have been acclaimed by both the competent press (the Actualitatea muzicala radio station) and the cultural press (Observator cultural). Among the most favorite programmes (by the listeners and myself) there are: 'The discophile's hour', 'Romania Music mornings', 'In the universe of music...with' Victor Rebengiuc, Horia Roman Patapievici, Nicolae Manolescu, Vlad Alexandrescu, Octavian Paler, Constantin Balaceanu Stolnici, Marcel Iures, Music box By examination, since June 2004 -editor-in-chief, and since February 2006 (as a result of the revision of the organization chart undertaken by the new AC), chief editor assistant at Radio Romania Music, and coordinator (more or less officially) of the PR and marketing activities of the radio station.

The most significant achievements:
rejuvenating the format of the radio station (and increasing the audience on this occasion), the 'Radio Romania Music at Carturesti' project, and all the other events at which you were invited by Radio Romania Music (The Square of the 'George Enescu' Festival, Gaudeamus, The days of the freedom of speech, etc).
Articles published in Cotidianul, Curierul National, Cronica româna, Evenimentul zilei, the magazines Actualitatea muzicala and Melos. Not to mention the almost 100 articles published in the Radio Magazine.

The most valuable thing: My family: my husband, Tiberiu, and my little son, Andrei, (because of Andrei, I have seen myself forced to be absent from my job from May 2006 to May 2007), and my parents, to whom I practically owe everything I am now.

The books: - (by the way, we may write each other about books we have read, if you are interested)

My principles: (My Chinese sign is the Fire Dragon, which does not mean that I blow fire out my nostrils, but it is not a good idea to set your face against me either, especially when I firmly believe in something ) My profession: (it comes without saying, of course)

The audience: - that is, you, the internet user -the listener, who may trustfully write to me at:
