To Our International Family Man...Hello, Cristi!

Born not-too-far from one of Dracula’s castles (to be more specific, Cluj Napoca, Transylvania), Cristi often gets asked whether he can do the vampire’s infamous accent. For all those wondering, the answer is “no,” unfortunately. In fact, Cristi isn’t really a fan. But he lived there for nearly 25 years, meaning he has more than enough stories to scare you on Halloween!

Born not-too-far from one of Dracula’s castles (to be more specific, Cluj Napoca, Transylvania), Cristi often gets asked whether he can do the vampire’s infamous accent. For all those wondering, the answer is “no,” unfortunately. In fact, Cristi isn’t really a fan. But he lived there for nearly 25 years, meaning he has more than enough stories to scare you on Halloween!

Right now, Southern Spain is where Cristi calls home. He’s been living there for five years and has been working for IgnitePost for the past year and a half. It’s an interesting arrangement since Cristi has never been to the US, even though he actually wanted to move and live here before he settled down. It all ended up working out though, because the weather is fantastic in Spain, there are lots of international visitors and culture, and most importantly, people with backgrounds in tech are in high demand. Great for Cristi, who specialized in automatics and robotics in university!

Funny enough, even though Cristi didn’t major in software or computer science, that’s what he does at IgnitePost! He’s currently the technical lead, meaning he takes care of, plans, and manages everything tech-related at the company. This includes the dashboard, admin interface, and any new features that could be added to the website. However, there is one thing he’s looking forward to doing soon: working with the actual penmanship robots that create IgnitePost cards. At the moment, a lot of work goes into handling the robots. They have to be manually fed paper, the cards have to be collected and folded, pens have to be added, etc. Cristi thinks there is potential to automate part of that process and looks forward to adding some hardware responsibilities to his workload. Right now, his newest project involves improving the user experience when ordering and making cards.

As for other projects in his life...well...do kids count?

Cheers to the happy family!

Congratulations to Cristi and the new addition to his family: a baby boy! Officially one month old as of last Saturday, it has been a hectic few months with lots of changes. And with a 4-year-old daughter, too...no wonder Cristi doesn’t have many hobbies. When you have young kids, their hobbies end up being yours! But in whatever free time he has, Cristi has been exploring cryptocurrency. When he’s not changing diapers, preparing milk bottles, and cleaning up after a rambunctious daughter, he’s been learning the technology and business behind blockchains to see whether it is more than hype. Can crypto-currency solve a problem in the world? What kind of potential will fintech bring to business? Regardless of the answers, Cristi views this as a good challenge, as well as a unique interest.

While his interests seem to have stayed the same, his music taste hasn’t escaped unscathed. Once a fan of rock and metal music, Disney seems to have taken over completely. Not that I can blame him. Frozen and Moana have such catchy soundtracks. You’ll find yourself humming them while you wash the dishes! What’s a better bonding moment than to sing Let it go with your kids?

Hopefully everything works out and school can begin safely for all children. Good luck to you and your wife, Cristi! Hoping you guys get some more sleep soon! Let’s say a full 6 hours?
