Vlad comes from a one-parent family and is living together with his mother and grandmother. Recently his mother has been diagnosed with an eye disease, that causes her to slowly lose her sight in the coming years. She will be blind if she won't receive a cornea replacement.
Vlad is following the specialization Electronics and Automation at the Technical College of Communications "Augustin Maior" in Cluj-Napoca where he was proclaimed as an exemplary student in terms of behaviour and relationships with teachers and fellow students.
Vlad's big passion is swimming. In 20104 he won the first place in 100m backstroke at the swimming competition TYR CUP-Flykick in Baia Mare, and a second place (200m) and a third place (50m) during the National Junior Championships Swimming in Bucharest. Currently he is training the junior team, together with his coach. He would like to pursue a coaching career.
