About me

I received my doctoral degree in mass communications from Southern Illinois University-Carbondale in 2005, but I started my undergraduate liberal arts education in Bulgaria in 1993. In fact, I was born and raised during the time Bulgaria was a faithful Soviet satellite and I remember the events around the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989 vividly. My research naturally gravitates toward online media and media developments in the Balkans. In my spare time I like to travel, cook, or watch good movies.
