Present place of residence: Galati city,Romania

I began writing haiku in 1999 and since then, it has became a way of living. I’ve graduated from Cybernetics but, for me, writing haiku was enriching my personality; like taking a photo, I want to capture the moment and keep it inside for as long as I can.
