About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Find your passion.

ABOUT ME

I am a bit chaotic. At times I am very talkative and can converse for hours on the stuff I find fascinating, at other times I prefer chilling and being alone. I find people in general interesting and love unusual and colorful stories. Everyone has some and loves sharing them.
I am working as a freelance artist. I make concept art and animation for computer games and the entertainment business.
I am trying to improve my art lately, but I find it hard, as there are so many things to see and do.
I love live gigs a lot and try to visit as much summer festivals as I can!
Sofia is not exactly your bike friendly city, but I am with my bike whenever I can. I much prefer it than anything else.

PHILOSOPHY

Smile and the world smiles with you!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I hosted more than 50 people in the past, most of them groups of 3 or 4 people, it is a great experience every time! I rarely surf, I wish I had more time to travel the world!

Interests

Cartoon animation, game design, 3d animation, life drawing, digital art, all kinds of MUSIC, hypnosis and psychology.
I love urban cycling.
Hitch-hicking!
I am absolutely addicted to live gigs and music festivals!

Music, Movies & Books

I love watching documentaries, especially about the mind. I watch a lot of stand up comedy and comedy shows.
I enjoy all kinds of music and you will rarely find me listening to one thing consistently. I like finding new music. That said, I have a couple of bands I listen to more often, like AC/DC, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple, Justice, Kiril Djaikovski, Isihia, Kamo & Crooked, Depeche Mode, Prodigy, Plan B, Jamie Woon, and more.
I used to read a lot of sci-fi and fantasy when I was younger, my favorite was the epic The Wheel Of Time by Robert Jordan from which I remember almost nothing (only that it was supposedly written by a woman on basis of a tabletop rpg adventure, most likely Dungeons&Dragons). My favorite author was Isaac Azimov. Nowadays I read mostly about the mind.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

One of the greatest experiences for me was hitch-hiking through Eastern Europe and going to the Sziget festival in Budapest, Hungary. I've been there 3 times now, and had a blast. The last couple of years I am visiting the Exit festival in Serbia. I love live gigs and hitch-hiking! I've worked for 4 months in the second biggest gambling town of USA which was an amazing experience in itself!

Teach, Learn, Share

I have been a teacher once, just for a month. I was teaching high school students about animation in a private school. It was very interesting and humbling experience (also - stressful). I can share knowledge about animation, digital and traditional painting and computer game creation with software like Flash, 3d Max, Adobe AfterFX, Photoshop.

Countries I've Visited

Croatia, France, Hungary, Italy, Montenegro, Mozambique, Romania, Serbia, United Kingdom

Countries I've Lived In
