Brief history

I have been designing and building websites since 1999 so have seen many changes and developments in this industry over the last 12 years. I was born and raised on the south coast of the beautiful Danube river, in Svishtov, Bulgaria.

I graduated from High School in 1995 and then went on to study at the Academy of Economics "Dimitar Tsenov" - Svishtov, Bulgaria, where in 2000 I graduated with Masters degree in Marketing.

My early experience and interest was in developing and designing packaging and poster design, which as you can imagine was a difficult challenge during a period of change and upheaval in Bulgaria. I have always been fascinated by packaging design and in my youth spent endless hours collecting unusual design concepts which were hard to find in a communist country. My inspiration now comes from my imagination which was ignited during those years where design was so limited and also from the beautiful natural elements of my country, it is a wonderful place to work.

In the early 90's I was fortunate to have access to the computer network within the Academy I attended and a whole new world opened up to me. As soon as the internet came along my hunger for knowledge and learning consumed me and when I was lucky enough to win some money from a lottery, I purchased my first computer.

From then on I have not looked back and have now trained myself in all aspects of modern design and web based programming. I am now experienced in Flash, HTML, CSS, Photoshop and many other web based applications which I use in delivering projects for my clients both here in Bulgaria and abroad. I delivered my first commercial project in 1999, a website for a local manufacturing company and since then have designed and delivered over 150 websites and design related projects.

I am passionate about the work I do and still have that hunger for creating innovative design, born out of those years where design and creativity existed only in my imagination.
