1. Could you tell us a little bit about yourself?

I am 29 years old, I work in business development for an American company and I'm also a wedding planner.  I have 8 years of experience in organising both incoming and outgoing holidays all around the world. My passion is to put a unique stamp on your travels. I am an event planner for vacations, bachelor parties and special events.

2. Tell us about your favorite place in Bucharest. What is special about it?

The northern area of Bucharest is beautiful. From there you can see the most special sunset and the warmest sunrise. Hiro Bay bar offers a unique experience of modern and traditional food, accompanied by music by the most famous DJs.

8. How did you discover Showaround?

I was looking for a friendly app to discover the world through the eyes of a local.

9. Tell us about your best Showaround experience.

I think that's the greatest spiritual fulfilment you can have - knowing that people were happier because of you.

I organised the 50th wedding anniversary of a 70 year old couple as a surprise party. I had so many emotions as if it was my party... and now when I think about it I can feel the emotions of that moment! I think that's the greatest spiritual fulfilment you can have - knowing that people were happier because of you.

10. Do you have any tips for other locals who are just starting out?

To put passion into everything they do!
