Octavian is a journalist, writer, photographer and marketing specialist.
He worked as a reporter and editor throughout Canada for more than 10 years, and his work has appeared in a variety of news outlets and magazines, including CTV News/Bell Media, Toronto Observer and Black Press. These days, he creates marketing solutions, promotional and social media strategies for businesses in Victoria, B.C.
Born in Romania during the Revolution, Octavian came to Canada in 1998 with his parents in search of a better life. After constantly talking about writing and scribbling things, he enrolled in the Centennial College Journalism, Media & Print program so he could explore the world at large and tell its colourful stories.
In his past time (and to stay relatively sane) Octavian builds LEGO creations that move and drive, and daydreams about cars he can’t possibly afford.
