My name is Cristina Chipurici, but my friends call me ‘Pyuric’ – a nickname I’ve had for 25 years (based on my family name). Born, raised and still living in Bucharest, Romania – an Eastern European country.
In September 2017 I co-founded The CEO Library with Bobby Voicu – a project where we help entrepreneurs figure out the right books for their needs & context. I interview successful business founders to see how books shaped their journey & what they learned.
Previously I’ve worked in the music business for almost 10 years, supporting independent hip-hop artists. I was specialized in taking their raw energy, translating it to (potential) fans & amplifying it – and making it all happen with no budget available.
Also founded and ran a music blog (Monden.info, later rebranded into Urban.ro) between 2007 and 2011. Thanks to strong ethical principles and values, such as transparency, no gossip or click bait titles, it became the top source of information for music lovers and first Romanian blog to be sold (despite the mid global financial crisis). Invested those money into a Master in Music Business at Berklee College of Music.
Took a short detour working as a digital marketer for various businesses, through agencies or directly with brands – especially startups (you’ll find an extended list on my LinkedIn profile).
Trying to keep a stoic state of mind.
Vegetarian. Completely eliminated alcohol, flour/wheat, processed sugar and time wasted on social media. I need coffee, though.
INTJ personality, so I’m probably the most difficult person to work with.
Every week I’m sending a newsletter with neuron-stretching articles and my thoughts on them: Cristina’s Friday Read.
If you want to contact me, here’s what you should know first:
– I don’t do ads or any kind of promotional / branded content. Please don’t send me invitations to events, press releases, or any other kind of collaboration forms.
– I never reply to social media DMs or comments, only email (my address is: contact at this domain).
– If this bothers you, grow up.
