I nerd out about finance and code

The name of this blog comes from the fact that I was born in Romania and immigrated to Canada. I strongly believe in immigration and my tax dollars suggest that you should believe in it too.

I have worked in finance since 2007, when I graduated from St. Francis Xavier University with a Bachelor's Degree in Economics. January 2016 I embarked on a journey to learn code and went to San Francisco, California to attend DevBootcamp. I learned full stack programming by way of Ruby, JavaScript, Sinatra, and Ruby on Rails.

Recently I have been getting into Machine Learning using Python and it's awesome libraries. After, I plan on tackling AI and building a stock trading robot to take over the world. Muahahahaha!

Notable coding languages and frameworks I have experience with include:

  • iOS development using Swift
  • React & React Native
  • HTML5
  • CSS
  • Bootstrap
  • jQuery
  • AJAX
  • Git
  • Python
  • TensorFlow

Among the various finance courses I have finished are the following:

  • CFA Level 1 Exam
  • Canadian Securities Course
  • Investment Funds in Canada Course
  • Branch Compliance Officer
  • Financial Planning I
  • Financial Planning II
  • Life License Qualification Program

Besides scholarly pursuits, I enjoy skiing, reveling in the vanity of Instagram, and watching movies.
