About Me

A hardworking and professional person who is deeply enthusiastic about working in the film and television industry. I spent most of my younger years working in theatre and have worked as a stage manager on several stage shows, both professional and amateur. I have even worked as director for a small show in the education sector. I am eager to be worked hard and enjoy taking on a new challenge. I speak a respectable amount of Bulgarian and basic German although I am willing to work on these if required.

I have also recently worked for the National Theatre as a stage technician for the Danny Boyle production of Frankenstein which will open February 2011.

I have also recently worked as a runner in a couple of short films and have produced/directed a short documentary about a declining village centre for the newly established June Hill Productions.

I have been cast as an extra in a variety of film projects from student films to big-budget films such as "Les Miserables".
