About Me

I'm a full-stack developer with over 4 years of professional experience in web development, currently based in Serbia. After working in a several software companies as a front-end and back-end developer, I became a full time freelancer in 2014. As a multidisciplinary professional, I have a solid experience in the overall process of software product creation - from design and planning, to development and marketing / sales activities.

In my spare time, I am also a videographer and wannabe writer. When not coding my personal projects, I enjoy taking out my Canon DSLR and creating short films and landscape footage.

  • HTML / CSS
  • JS / jQuery / CoffeeScript
  • Bootstrap / Scss
  • D3.js
Back-End Coding
Ah, this is what keeps me up at night. I believe that the software should be able to change the world, and as such, it has to be reliable and built with love and care. If you have an idea for a web application that has a potential to make an impact - do not hesitate to make a first step right away.
  • PHP (Laravel, Symfony)
  • MySQL
  • Git / Mercurial
  • RESTful API
UI / UX / Design

  • Web Apps Design
  • Graphic / Photo Editing
  • Audio / Video Production
Some projects I've worked on
During my web development career I have worked on numerous and diverse projects. Unfortunately, some of my best work was done under the NDA agreements (and some were in-house projects), so I am unable to display them as a part of my portfolio. Here you can see some of the projects that I am allowed to showcase. In some cases, the links are still valid, while others either expired or I never got the final web urls from the clients. If you have any additional questions about specific projects, feel free to send me a message.
