Our interview with Mr. Curmei was cut quite short due to the following response,“There’s really not much any man can say about himself that does not come across sounding egocentric. I’m gonna try and stick to that.”

He was born in Romania, yet left at the age of six. Destination? U.S. of A. Grew up in Chi-town for the first two years of his life, followed by the remaining 14 years in Phoenix, Arizona. A history of musical and martial arts made him the ‘crazy’ human he is today. Majors in Chemistry and English ‘endowed’ him with with a joy for jumbling letters, sometimes making people laugh in the process. His true joy and ultimate goal.

Even though a “professional” background in writing has not been developed yet, his love of expression, in any form, has led to a large stack of notebooks on his coffee table. Some stories are about love. Some stories are about clarity. Some stories are about trials and tribulations. All of them are about what it means to be a human. Most recently you’ll even find stories about anything vehicles, transportation, and more.
