I am a fixer, location producer, researcher and Investigative journalist with 20+ years of experience. In the last 10+ years I have been using my skills to assist international journalists/crews coming to shooting in Bulgaria or seeking help in the country. I have worked with colleagues from Australia, Austria, France, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, and USA. I am a hardworking, reliable and trustworthy person with excellent organizational and planning skills, and I have a superb track record in getting results for the projects to which I am assigned. I am highly self-motivated with a passion for detail. I am accurate, diligent, efficient, determined and possess the ability to prioritize tasks and perform different duties which ensures that deadlines and objectives are met. Over my many years working as a journalist I have acquired a good knowledge and an excellent network of important contacts on various levels and, which gives me access to information, individuals, locations and permits throughout Bulgaria – many of which are extremely difficult to obtain. My years long journalistic experience helps me to go beyond traditional fixing and to enlarge it to full journalistic support to foreign crews covering Bulgaria. I am familiar with the social context of the region, which allows me to support not only fixing and logistic, but also research and production process.
