Aleksandar Manasiev

Aleksandar has been living the journalists’ “Golgotha” since 2003 and each day brings a new sweet torture. Nevertheless, he is addicted to the adrenaline rush the job brings. When he’s not holding his journalist pen, Aleksandar is an astronomy fan and likes reading Sci-Fi books especially by William Gibson and Philip K. Dick. His weakness is watching good series such as “The Wire”. He likes to travel with his eyes wide open or closed.
