where are all the stories?

June 25, 2018 | 1 Minute Read

In trying to refresh my online presence, I went through all the things me online and decided to get some stats out. My initial idea was to create a sort of a basic homepage or a single screen app representing me. After some experimenting and testing (meaning that I actually created the app and the homepage and showed it to friends who didn’t like it), I decided to take a more streamlined approach to my home page. Mostly because my home page shouldn’t be just a glorified CV. In fact, it shouldn’t be a CV at all. So I scraped the whole thing and started over, culminating at the current state of it (for now).

However, I still have the stats handy. Let’s have a look, shall we?


  • 18 short stories
  • 120+ tv show reviews
  • 50+ articles
  • a few shopping lists


  • 11 iOS apps
  • 20+ web sites
  • 2 kids

Worked as

  • iOS Engineer
  • Team Lead
  • Construction worker

  • Co-founder


  • Swift
  • Objective C
  • Bulgarian
  • PHP
  • HTML
  • CSS
  • JavaScript
  • Python
  • Perl

As you can see, I was trying to be funny, adding a quirky skill in each category. I could spend some time discussing them, but I don’t think they are that interesting. What I want to focus on instead is the Written category. Unlike the other three, where you can see skills and achievements from my CV, the stories and tv show reviews I had written are not that easy to find. My plan going forward is to republish most of the short stories and articles (not the reviews - they are not that relevant anymore) here, on my blog. I will publish them backdated, so they will (hopefully) appear before this post. And most of them would be in Bulgarian which, in turn, would prove my claim that I speak it.

Without further ado, I present to you the first such story - Чудото в 4 сутринта – фрагменти
