Biography

I am a visual artist and a front-end developer with more than 8 years of experience in designing/programming for web. I develop web interfaces with JS, CSS and HTML,while focusing on fine tuning the UI and problem solving in UX, I'm also very much into Knockout and REACT (which is my current interest). I'm experienced in UI/UX, graphic design and 3D Modeling.
I hold a Master Degree of Arts from University of Arts in Belgrade, and I have numerous certifications responsible for my wide knowledge in programing and designing. Besides of that, I'm still learning and exploring in order to become an expert in digital media - one who can analyse from a technical side, think creatively in order to set, not to follow design trends and also respect the end user's wish, habits and behaviors.
I moved from Belgrade to Reykjavik 3 years ago and I live here with my family.
