Born in Bucharest, Romania, Mircea was lucky to have the opportunity to travel the world. He encountered various cultures and explored the English language at a young age, so playing with words always seemed to come naturally.

After Mircea's first trip to a theme park, he sought other ways of getting the feeling of adrenaline. He ended up getting a skydiver's license, and nowadays, he tells everyone he meets to jump out of an airplane at least once in their lives.

When Mircea discovered he could get a motorcycle license when he was 16, he started learning more about two-wheeled machines and chose a Yamaha R125 as an introduction to the moto world. Back in his native city, he had already been roaming the streets on bicycles.

Years later, armed with a driver's license, he jumped at every opportunity to experience different rides, whether two or four-wheeled. He also developed a dream of building a campervan.

Mircea’s work on autoevolution ranges from e-bikes and other EVs to RVs of any kind, and just about anything that moves.
