I was born in Pleven, a town in the central north region of my beautiful Bulgaria. After finishing school I moved to the capital - Sofia and lived there for a decade. I’ve worked for a few web development companies. That’s the way I’ve build up my skills and extensive expertise as a software developer.
What followed were a couple of years when I did consulting work for foreign companies in Copenhagen, Hamburg and Vienna, including the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). My desire to learn and grow led me to a decision to try working and living abroad. I choose the UK when I joined NDP as a senior Drupal developer in late December 2013. I loved London and working with the team, but after two years there I felt it was time for something different. We’ve made a deal with the management for a remote work arrangement. This way I was free to come back to my country and continue working for the company. After a while, I joined one of the biggest fintech companies in Bulgaria. Currently I’m working with the awesome people at Camplight - a very different type of organisation, and I love it!
I’ve dedicated 10 years of my career to focusing on Drupal projects. Traditionally my role has been developing custom modules, extending contributed modules and helping the team by solving challenging technical problems. Most of my latest work on Drupal projects consists of writing custom modules communicating with different 3rd party systems via SOAP or REST APIs and migrating data from various legacy databases. I have also contributed some modules (webform_term_opts as an example) and patches to other modules. My Drupal.org profile has more related information.
Lately, I’ve been more interested in machine learning and completed some online courses on the subject. I’m looking forward to learn more while applying these new skills on new projects.
Please get in touch if there’s something I can help with in your current or future projects.
