About me

I am an award-winning film director, best known for my short films "Lunch Break" (comedy drama, 2012, 19’) and "Parking" (2014, drama, 19’), which was awarded Best Short Film by the Bulgarian Film Academy and Best Bulgarian Short by In The Palace Film Fest, and competed at the major fest in Clermont-Ferrand, Glasgow, Sofia and Vilnius. I'm currently in post-production of my new short "The One You Follow", and developing my feature debut. 
I have worked as a journalist before gaining experience in the film industry as casting director, first and second AD and location manager. I am a graduate the London Film Academy in 2007 and an established commercials director.
