Biography

I was born in Sofia, which you might say is just another big capital, but the nice and wonderful mountain Vitosha is located right next to it. There is where it all started. Everyone in my family were former skiers so for me it was natural to spend my days above the city with my friend and playing - because this is what skiing is for me even till today. I joined the HEAD Rebels after a Junior Competition in Zagreb, when Christian Gappmaier offered me to try some very fast skis. Since then adrenalin is everything that I am looking for and this game has become much more exciting!
