I was born in Plovdiv, Bulgaria and started playing piano at the age of 6. I also trained football for 2 years in my teens. I left Bulgaria to pursue music studies in the US at the age of 16. While in America, I won a First Prize at the “Bradshaw & Buono International Piano Competition” in New York and was a laureate of the Los Angeles Music Center “Spotlight Awards”. In 2012, I made my Austrian Debut as a soloist of the Vienna Residence Orchestra at “Palais Auersperg”.

I have appeared at such venues as New York’s “Steinway Hall” and “Paul Hall”, “Dorothy Chandler Pavilion”(Los Angeles), “Jordan Hall” (Boston),”Schloss Halbturn Palace”(Vienna), “Balabanov House” (Bulgaria), and “Madinat Theatre”(Dubai).
