His occupation is a writer, theatre person and translator. He is famous as the “father” of Bulgarian emigration in America. His newspaper “Rodoliyubets”, which comes out in two copies at the end of the XIX century, is a valuable document about the life, way of thinking and the socio-political and cultural development of our country during the Revival period – until the end of the XIX century. “Rodoliyubets” is the first Bulgarian newspaper meant for the whole family.
