Teo Biocina

Los Angeles, CA, US



I keep busy with design, skateboarding, cycling, playing guitar and everything in between.

Originally from Belgrade, Serbia I've been living in Los Angeles for more than 3 decades.

My creativity and passion for design stems from my upbringing, my passion to create and my exposure to the creative process at an early age.

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