About Me


In the changing world we are living in, some values are universally respected today, as they always had been. Values and virtues as moral, education, knowledge, and trustworthiness should be the basics of private life and code of conduct in business life of every professional. I’m certainly hopping that I had achieved that.

But what come after, is equally important and that is the KNOWING HOW TO MAKE JOB DONE! In sense of media, and when I sad media I mean many diverse things as: video production, directing, recording, broadcasting, internet publishing , promoting, advertising and least but not last printed media, thanks to rich experience and years of investing in professional development I’m very confident that I CAN DELIVER. And that is what is counting.

      What can I do ?


      • AS verastile as anyone can be

        Somehow I evolved in journalism since high school, actively and professionally for more than ten years, so I know how to do that job right. My current activities are demanding strong managerial skills and knowledge. Most of the things I made, wrote, edited, designed are directly linked to agriculture. So, there is no area of agriculture, from basic agricultural production to the finalization and packaging of products about, in which, I don’t have at least a basic knowledge and in some fields advanced. Working in the media, I had learned to film, edit, and in general work in video and sound production. Although, I have no formal education , I have practical skills in shooting with professional cameras, video editing in Sony Vegas Video, Final Cut Pro, and by general creating multimedia content. I’m working with various other software for graphic design.Since I am almost constantly engaged in making, among other things, commercial reports, and other forms - my job is directly related to the marketing and advertising.I’m graduated veterinarian so can deal with all things that are related to veterinary medicine. I can fluently speak and read, write English. I can speak and read Russian. I’m learning French. My mother tongue is Serbian. Also, I can speak, read, and write Croatian, a Boshnjak language. I readily understand Macedonian and Slovenian.
