About Dr Dragos
Dr. Dragos is a writer, award-winning scientist, and speaker who was presented on five continents. His life’s purpose is to connect stories, science, entrepreneurship and the teachings of Jesus Christ to empower people to heal their life and make their dreams a reality. As Steve Vai, Grammy award winning musician said about him: “Dragos, you are one of the few that are at the forefront of a vital movement that inspires a shift in our consciousness so we can evolve into more beautiful us-es. I love your story, it’s inspirational.”
In 2018, Hay House published Dr. Dragos’s book “The Pursuit of Dreams: Claim Your Power, Follow Your Heart and Fulfill Your Destiny.” In “The Pursuit of Dreams” Dr. Dragos shares the deeply personal experience of how he accomplished his dreams—including traveling to the North and South Poles without any money or connections—to show how you can reclaim your power and take change over your life by listening to the voice of Truth. Travel the world with Dr. Dragos, go behind the scenes in Silicon Valley and NASA headquarters, and meet an eclectic cast of characters, including a Buddhist teacher, an Army veteran, a monk from Transylvania, a Google innovator, and a NASA legend. Their fascinating conversations inspire you and empower you to realize your dreams. With this book, Dr. Dragos also released The Pursuit of Dreams docuseries – a movie series to discover who you are, what matters most to you, and how to make your dreams a reality anywhere you start.
In 2015, Dr. Dragos published the book “Engineering Success: The True Meaning of Leadership and Team Building.” The book presents the key findings of over 20 years of leadership, wisdom and lessons you need to know but don’t want to learn the hard way. As Frank Chapman, the test pilot for Airbus A380 wrote about this book: “If you want proven, down-to-earth and immediately applicable knowledge on how to improve your leadership skills and how to understand the mechanisms of a team then you will love this book.”
In 2014, Dragos published The Amazing You movie, a breathtaking journey to personal fulfillment with NASA legends, rock stars, New York Times bestselling authors and the founder of Angry Birds. The movie empowered people all over the world to live a purpose-driven life, and was translated in 20 languages.
As a scientist, Dragos holds a Ph.D in the field of satellite-based intelligence and has received several international awards for his research. His team at Singularity University was named by Forbes Magazine “among the smartest people in the world,” and Dragos was nominated for the M.I.T. Innovators Under 35 Award – a most prestigious recognition for “the brightest minds in Europe who are changing society” with their ideas.
"When your pockets are empty, go where your heart is full."
He started from a humble beginning in Eastern Europe where he lived as a student with $100 a month for five years. At 24 years old and fresh out of university he organised and traveled alone on two expeditions to the North and the South Pole. At 25 he was selected the engineer and journalist of the first Romanian Simulation mission to Mars. The mission was organised in partnership with NASA and paved the way for future manned missions to the Red Planet. With these expeditions, Dragos was featured twice in National Geographic. For the last ten years Dragos has been working in the advanced scientific circles of space agencies, as well as studying with monks and spiritual teachers. He traveled on five continents searching for God, and after a decade-long journey around the world, Dragos discovered that when we find God we find Jesus Christ, and only when we find Christ we find our true Home.
What others are saying
Dr. Dragos stands for the hopeless, for the ones who starve for more meaning and purpose, for the rebels, the rejected, and the lonely. The genius of Dr. Dragos makes us clearly see that beyond the field of suffering, doubt, and problems that we face in life, there is a place in our hearts where courage, hope, and love still make our dreams possible.
