A lifelong student of Indian classical music, worldwide traveler, and surveyor of natural beauty.
I was born in Sofia, Bulgaria and went on to live in India, California, and Belarus before moving to South Austin at the age of 10. I’ve called central Texas and the hill country home since then.
I am a student of the natural world based in Austin, Texas. Along with studying environmental science, public policy, yoga, and Indian classical music, I have 10+ years experience in customer service, customer success, and account management with cloud-based SaaS products.
From a place of power, I aim to empower others.
I bring to the table a blend of empathy, ambition, and a relentless drive to do good. In my current role at Sauce Labs, I help businesses deliver quality mobile and web applications through continuous testing and CI/CD. I am passionate about emerging technologies and finding the underlying connections between communities.
My professional career up to 2016 has been summed up in this blog post. As for school, I’ve attended Jefferson Elementary in San Francisco, Minsk International School in Belarus, St. Columba’s School in New Delhi, grades 6-12 in Austin at Bailey, Paredes, Kealing, and LBJ, and attended college at UT San Antonio and Austin Community College, before earning a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Science and Public Policy from St. Edward’s University.
I studied yoga from my father and at the Swamy Vivekananda Yoga Anusandhana Samsthana in Bangalore, India. I’ve had the great fortune to study at the Nizami School of Music since 2011, training in vocals and sitar with Ustad Ghulam Farid Nizami.
I’m always open to connecting with like-minded folks who have a shared desire to achieve personal and professional excellence.
