I am editor of the weekly newspaper in northeastern Bulgaria, Forum. It's situated in the city of Rousse, Bulgaria. I'm responsible for the "Culture" and "Society" section. I have a book of my own, with poems. My work has also been published in Pristine of Love (2001), Invasive Fires (2005) European haiku The Rose (2003), Simply Haiku: A Quarterly Journal of Japanese Short Form Poetry, One Thousand Cranes (Published by biblioteca Romanian kukai), and LiterNet (Bulgaria).

Selected Work
Black crows– 
Scattered rosary
In a winter morning.
Icy scherzo,
The wind plays
On the copper bells.
Underneath my window
The sparrows fight
For a crust of bread.
The rain pipe
Can’t stop crying
He’s alone.
Frozen lake.
Grey silence
In a white desert.
Winter whims,
Icy leaves 
Hardly whisper.
