In short

Me with my Washburn guitar

I'm a full stack web developer focused on WordPress, a music enthusiast that really loves guitar and piano, and a wannabe photographer. I enjoy spending time on debugging and fixing complex issues, developing open-source projects, as well as contributing to WordPress core and translation. I currently live and work in Varna, Bulgaria.
