Cezar was born in Bucharest, Romania and grew up in a rough neighborhood in the capital city. In the early youth years Cezar was asked to join a criminal gang and to become involved in criminal activity. Even though he refused, he grew up amongst a population of thieves, drug addicts, drug dealers, burglars, and prostitutes. In an environment where violence and crime was the daily norm he focused on learning and training. Aged 14 he joined Rapid Bucharest boxing club where after 2 years he was offered a professional contract which he later declined.
After almost dropping out from high-school aged 17, while returning home from training Cezar saw a response vehicle attending an alarm outside a bar. There, 2 imposing security officers were evicting a troublemaker out of a venue. This is when he realized that he can use his physical capabilities for a useful purpose while learning a new set of skills. The following day he wrote a resume and then visited the security company headquarters and demanded a job. Cezar was hired on the spot as a security guard for a well-known retail company in the City Centre.
Cezar quickly becomes noticed for his professionalism and ability to exceed the job requirements and was promoted through the ranks of the company. Cezar quickly mastered the craft of security guarding and just two years later, after passing his driving license tests, he joined the ranks of the intervention officers in the specialist division for public order.
For the next 5 years, Cezar received specialist training in crowd control, public order and alarm response. He joined the special intervention division of Bronic Security, a 20-strong group trained to aid the Gendarmerie in public events, football matches, concerts and public gatherings.

At only 22, after leaving the public order division, Cezar was employed to coordinate and manage the security team at the headquarters of RCS-RDS telecom corporation in Bucharest. Based near the Parliament building and with over 3500 people working and visiting the headquarters daily this was by no means an easy task.

The process involved an entire reshape of procedures, security systems and even training for certain staff. Amongst security and safety tasks, Cezar was also appointed as Health and Safety representative.
