I was born in the town of Gabrovo, located in north-central Bulgaria, where I lived throughout my early childhood before my family moved to the United States. I received a B.S. and a M.S. in Computer Science from San José State University. The areas that I am most passionate about are in Distributed Systems, Software Architecture, Big Data, Machine Learning, and Information Security, though I have also dabbled a bit with Web and Mobile development. My career journey has led me through positions at Salesforce.com and Hewlett-Packard, as well as founding my own start-up. I’m a big sports fan, and watch a fair bit of TV series, probably more than I should. Some of my other hobbies include traveling, hiking, reading, and watching movies.
