About 

Originally from Belgrade, Serbia I've been living in Los Angeles for over two decades now. My late childhood years and my adolescence was spent in the city of Los Angeles, more specifically Hollywood.

Growing up in Hollywood during the 90's had it's challenges, the environment itself had a direct impact on me and the direction I would take in my near future. My father has a background in art and my mother was a cost estimator during the 1980’s for Energoprojekt, a large consulting, architecture and engineering firm in Belgrade. My creativity and passion for design stems from my upbringing, my environment and my exposure to the creative process at an early age.

On May 10th, 2008 I received a Bachelor's of Architecture degree from Woodbury University, School of Architecture.
