I’ve got a thing for water. A giant, unpredictable, fluid, powerful body of water…and every now and again, when I spend time close to it, I walk away with a somewhat-surreal shot of strangers in water. [Refer to my sunrise fisherman on a lonely boat in the Mediterranean sea] This was another moment of serendipity✨ A stranger walking on the Pacific shore at sunset. Who is he? Does he know I’m watching?
I moved across the ocean from Bulgaria to the US at age 16, alone, in pursuit of my studies. Since then, I have graduated from college in Connecticut, lived in Spain, traveled across Europe, met some extraordinary individuals, redefining the conventional understanding of "family," and learned how to live more meaningfully. A passionate student of Plato and Heidegger, I see travel as the ultimate guide to self-knowledge and reflection upon one's purpose. I strive to immerse myself deeply into foreign environments and hopefully learn how to cook a few local delicacies. A thrill-seeker of what Immanuel Kant calls the "sublime," namely breathtaking natural landscapes, I try to immortalize them with my little Cannon camera. The pursuit of philosophical epiphanies and gastronomical indulgence is deeply embedded in my adventures.I just lost my crazy, overwhelming corporate job and am job hunting and diving into my writing. Here or abroad - bring it on!
