Birthplace: Vărzăreștii-Noi, Călărași, the center of Moldova.
Education: Faculty of Journalism, Moldova State University.
Study visits: I had the opportunity to visit over 50 countries of the world on five continents. Everywhere, I insisted on visiting newsrooms, prisons, and cemeteries. They were all my journalism lessons.
Work experience: 1989-2004 -Teleradio Moldova, Catalan TV, Flux, IDIS Viitorul; 2004 to present – ZdG.
Responsibilities at ZdG: I am the co-founder and accidentally a manager. However, journalism is my passion. I am responsible for managing activities and identifying funds, and if I have time, I write.
When and why I came to ZdG: I left several politically controlled newsrooms, I no longer wanted to work in censored institutions. And in 2004, I joined ZdG. I stayed here because no politician can exercise any control over the ZdG. In addition, after visiting hundreds of newsrooms around the world, I did not find a more interesting team anywhere.
What I like to do besides my editorial work: I like to care for my family, to laugh at trifles, to meditate in silence, to play loud music, to make plans about journalism, to try to do something other than journalism and rediscover that I still can’t, to believe that hardships are good, to see again and again how good prevails, and to enjoy life.

Birthplace: Drochia village, Drochia district
Education: Moldova State University
Work experience: The first job was the News Department at State Television. I was part of the team that launched Mesager, the first news program in Independent Moldova. Later, I worked at the first Independent Television Station – Catalan. I also worked for the Flux and Accente newspapers, after which I came to the Ziarul de Gardă.
Responsibilities at ZdG: Together with the team, we do Ziarul de Garda, as well as news and video products, we participate in several media projects, we train students, who come to the newsroom in international projects, such as IREX, or interns who come from faculties of journalism.
Ziarul de Garda has grown since 2004 when it was launched: it has expanded its team, diversified its media products, and increased the number of subscribers. All this because we always approached hot topics without fear.
When and why I came to ZdG: First, together with some journalists, I founded Ziarul de Gardă, and I remained here to work. It has been almost 16 years since then. When we started, I thought it was a test of strength, of our experience, as well as a test of the media market, in order to understand if we were ready to resist in Moldova at a time when the Communist Party of the Republic of Moldova was in power. It was not easy, but today we understand that it was possible.
What I like to do besides the editorial activity: I like to listen to the sea, to the chirping of birds and to absolute silence. I would choose any trip to unknown places, especially now. I bake bread with great pleasure, and for eight years I have been following the most special phenomenon that can exist in one’s life – I have been watching my grandson Ștefănel growing up.

Work experience: I started collaborating with ZdG in 2008, after the first year of internship. Between May and October 2010, I became a sports journalist, and senior editor at the Sports Department, Publika TV. Then I went back to ZdG and I grew up with ZdG.
Responsibilities at ZdG: I do many things. Sometimes investigations, other times interviews or news. Since the beginning of 2020, I participate more actively in the development and improvement of the site www.zdg.md.
When and why I came to ZdG: I came to ZdG for the annual internship, after my first year of studies. I saw in a newspaper at the university library that the newspaper did not have the sports section and I decided to give life to that section. When I got to the newsroom, however, I did anything but sports news. What I currently do at ZdG somehow fuels my desire to do justice, a desire I previously wanted to realize from the position of lawyer, judge, or prosecutor.
What I like to do besides the editorial work: I play football, even at six in the morning. I watch football, but also other sports. I look forward to seeing Juventus Torino win the Champions League every year. I consume news and information even when I am not at work. I like the sea very much and traveling. I also have a dream. To live by the sea or at least near the beach of an ocean 🙂, in a country where there is no winter.

When and why I came to ZdG: I have been with ZdG since 2005. It was a challenge. It was a different product on our media market, a brave newspaper, uncensored, uncontrolled politically, inconvenient to power, which was not simply written, but “cultivated” and in which freedom, primarily creative, was on everyone’s account.
What I like to do besides the editorial activity: I like to read, to travel (although I have less and less time for it), I am passionate about fishing (I was born on the Danube).

Social media manager
Birthplace: Cornești, Ungheni district
Education: Faculty of Sociology and Social Work, Babeș-Bolyai University, Cluj-Napoca, Romania; School of Advanced Studies in Journalism, Chișinău
Work experience: I became a journalist by vocation. My mother is a journalist and I have been in the field since I was a child, but I started working on it late. At the end of my studies at the School of Advanced Studies in Journalism, I did the internship at Pro TV Chișinău where I stayed for some years. As such, I was thinking about a career as a sports journalist, somewhere online and no television, but… I started as a site editor, event reporter, then political reporter, then administrator of the company’s websites. In 2012 I went to Prime where I managed the web content of the new media trust, but I also had the opportunity to become a producer of the UEFA Champions League program broadcasts: matches, summaries, and the weekly show. From January 2014 to September 2014, I was senior web at GMG, managing all of the company’s sites. Since 2015, I have acquired and managed the UNIMEDIA.INFO news portal.

When and why I came to ZdG: I came in February 2020, somewhat accidentally. As such, I was going to start another job at the Zimbru Chișinău football club, and in the meantime, I received a message if I could somehow help the development of ZdG’s Social Media. I have enormous respect for Ziarul de Gardă and the people here whom I know and respect for what they have been doing for many years, so I accepted without hesitation. Subsequently, the project at Zimbru failed and I started full-time and I am satisfied.
What I like to do besides the editorial activity: I play football; I watch football matches, as well as almost all existing sports.

When and why I came to ZdG: In 2017, I came to ZdG, after trying to find myself making commercial photos and videos, but I understood that this is not for me, I do not like to distort reality by masking the defects and giving importance only to beautiful and often invented things. I understood that in order to achieve my goal, that of making movies, I need a lot of experience and knowledge. I thought that an independent press that also makes video reports would give me these opportunities and I was right. In three years of working for ZdG I learned to set my camera with my eyes closed, to make important decisions in fractions of a second, but the most important thing that happened to me, I overcame many fears, which hindered my development. I gained a lot of courage, which I always lacked. After having jumped a few times over some fences for some exclusive shots, I understood that in vain my mother scolded me as a child when I jumped fences.
What I like to do besides my editorial work: I like listening to music. I also like to spend my time in the kitchen preparing all kinds of dishes. If I am in the country with my parents, and I have free time, then I take pictures of my neighbors (I like to photograph life in the country) and although I have been promising to bring them the printed photos for years, I have not done it yet.
