In 1999 he came to Canada where he discovered the art of composing for film. He did self-study courses from Boston based Berklee College of Music and has since completely dedicated his career entirely to scoring for film.

Blending his traditional orchestral background with tasteful modular electronics and eclectic world music sensibilities, Catalin has created a signature sound, which has earned him 2 Canadian Screen Award nominations.
