I started my career a long time ago. My first job was, behold … a sheppard! I was at school and I needed money. Believe it or not I have learned a lot from my first job :)
After that I used to sell small goods, and when I finished high school I joined the Bulgarian Army. I spent 5 years in intelligence doing some secret military stuff.
After 5 years I realized I needed a change and in order to escape the army’s stupidity, I decided to pursue my dream – to work in IT. If you go through my resume you will find a lot of things – I used to work as a programmer, web architect, IT manager, Product and Project Manager, Open Source consultant, community manager, marketeer. I’ve spend 6 years working on startups.
What else is worth mentioning:
- I am a Pirate! My signature is on the establishment act of Pirate Parties International.
- I ran for European parliament with the idea to fight for our digital rights
- I love startups
- I was on Forbes twice :) On Wikileaks and Globalvoices once :)
- I have organized more than 30 events (for developers, hackers and designers) in USA and Europe.
