Cristian is a storyteller, editor, and founder. He is currently the chair of the European Press Prize Preparatory Committee. For 13 years he ran DoR, a digital and print magazine that was an important landmark for Romanian independent journalism until it closed in late 2022. In 2020, DoR won the European Press Prize Innovation award, the culmination of a series of experiments it was known for: from new products, business models, and formats, to bringing journalism on stage, to creating community. Cristian is a 2014 Nieman Fellow, and a part of the 2024 CUNY News Innovation and Leadership cohort.
