“Associate Professor of Women’s Market”
Calls himself an urban anthropologist, he is chasing a doctorate in “Urban Studies” at Sofia University and his biggest concern is to make people more sensitive to those who can not live like them. Key experts who decide the fate of thousands of souls, just like that, while sitting on their desks is what bugs him the most. In the morning he talks to councilors, directors and urbanists, and in the afternoon with the gypsies, the pensioners and the drunks at the market. His dream is that they would meet each other and talk as people of equal dignity.

He loves spending the little free time he has with his friends and enjoys to meet new people, to travel the world, to hike up mountains, to read books, to think about life while biking, and to make some joyful noise with his drums. He cherishes the little things in life and his relationships with people, admires the good old values, and does his best to keep the child in him alive. =)
“Man learns all his life” was something my grandma and my primary school teacher used to say. Fortunately, this process goes on in one’s life, conscious or not. Well, when you make it deliberately and see every glimpse of life as a priceless lesson, then it is more fun, and much more productive.
Recently in the area of non-formal education, after a voluntary service, few trainings and continuing training by Theodor Heuss Kolleg and Balkans Let’s Get Up, I am happy to be part of the versitile team of the Factory.
