Originally from Bulgaria, I moved to Canada to pursue a passion for communications, design and visual arts.
Instagram: @gloomdarling
What is unique that's not in your bio?
Aside from the fact that I'm a total art kid, I also have a great passion for extreme sports. I have been skiing (freestyle, free ride and downhill) for 20 years now and I am always on the look out for adrenaline-driven experiences.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
My favorite accomplishment is that I have brought my ability of adaptation to impressive heights. Some might think that this is not necessarily an "accomplishment", but they don't have my dictionary.
How do you define cool?
Something that appears effortless, but is innovative, unique and carries great depth.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Be open to and curious about everything.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
The open-mindedness of innovation and the constant push for new inspirations and ideas.
How do you reset to be creative?
I go out for a bike ride or a hike; something out in nature.
What inspires or excites you?
A good book or film, an intelligent conversation, a new experience.
