A little bit about myself, I started playing tennis in Italy at the age of 10. From that first day I was hooked. I fell in love with it, you could even say that tennis was my first love. The passion kept growing and within a year I started competing doing quite well, this progression helped me become part of the SEK tennis academy in Madrid (At the time one of the top tennis academies in Spain). At 12 years old I moved in the academy where we traveled around Spain to play multiple different tournaments. On my second year we became regional & national team champions under 14. It was a great place to develop my tennis. The only down side was the school, they were not really on board with the tennis program. Which made it very difficult to combine school and tennis.
In 2014 I need it a change of scenery and moved to Amsterdam where I worked as a Graphic Designer and Art Director in advertising agencies, giving some tennis lessons on the weekends. After more than 6 years working in advertising and helping launch 2 startups in Bucharest, we decided to move to Costa Brava, Spain. During my time there I worked as a freelance Graphic Designer and a tennis coach, where I focused on helping the competition groups in the area for different clubs and gave private tennis & padel lessons at the exclusive five-star boutique hotel, Mas de Torrent. Two girls from the academy left on a full tennis scholarship to the USA, to go play for top 10 ranked Division I teams, and one boy left to Mallorca to train at the Rafael Nadal tennis Academy on a scholarship.
On September 2021 I moved to Knokke-Heist, in Belgium where I was training competition groups with top regional & national players while also helping with camps for adults and kids at all levels, both in tennis and padel. Last summer we beat the Guinness World Record for the longest marathon with 30 hr 30 min.
