I'm Catalin. I'm originally Romanian, although I lived in the US for some while now. Travel is in my blood since I was young, since I moved around a lot with my parents and lived for longer periods in place like Germany, Japan or Switzerland.
I'm a computer scientist by trade, having worked for some of the big tech companies in Silicon Valley. Right now I'm wrapping up my PhD at University of Maryland, College Park.
I don't smoke, and I'm described by my friends as a pretty responsible person, keeping a level head even after a couple of beers.
Wherever I happen to travel, I always look for ways to connect to the local culture, and try to stay away from a touristy schedule as much as possible. I like to do sports as much as possible while abroad, such as biking or kitesurfing. Lately, I've been favoring exotic locations such as Puerto Rico or Peru ... I very much enjoy the latin vibe.
