One Sentence About Me  

Here to lead through service, take risks, and tell jokes.

Who I Am  

A Little About Me

I was born in Sofia, Bulgaria and came to the U.S. with my parents at age 3. I've been a book nerd since I could read and a writer for about as long. I'm happiest in a role where I believe in the product/org and can get others excited about it, too. I love experiencing new cultures, hiking in the beautiful SF Bay Area, and taking improv classes.

Interesting Factoid

I just finished writing my first book. Woo!
