Me about Myself

Since my very early years, science and technology have been gradually taking possession of my mental focus, and hence most of my time. As a student at the High School of Mathematics in Varna, Bulgaria I took part in numerous competitions, mainly in mathematics, physics, astronomy, and computer programming. Today I still adore tackling various scientific and/or technological challenges, or at least finding about the ingenious solutions already proposed by others. Nonetheless, I have recently rediscovered the beauty of fiction, and thus have been reading more and more of it along with the technical literature that I would normally enjoy.

In my spare time, I like discussing bright new ideas with active people from all walks of life, who are motivated to change the world for the better. Strangely for most, I do some of this exploration in languages which I barely know. Sure, I usually don’t understand every single word, but I do appreciate the unique experience I gain from such linguistic endeavours.

Other hobbies of mine #include <programming>, playing with hardware gadgets, learning new languages, and doing sports. Previously, I trained martial arts: judo, kyokushin karate, and jiu jitzu. At present, I prefer cycling, running, and simply working out at the gym. Moreover, I used to be an inline skater, but I haven’t done that for quite some time now. Obviously, I like writing as well and this is the main reason for the existence of the present website in this exact form. However, lack of style is quite possible since I often write in languages I am not a native speaker of.
