ABOUT ME

I was born 07.08.1981 in Zadar, former Yugoslavia, today’s Croatia.At age of seven I had my first violin experience at local school.

1991 moved to Cuprija, Serbia and enrolled Special School for musically gifted children”Horeum Margi”. With choir, orchestra and various chamber ensembles I performed across many European countries.In those 8 years I have played about 500 concerts. Awarded for many competitions for solo, chamber and orchestra.In 1999 I was accepted at Music University Belgrade, Serbia.Whole my studies I was performing with Belgrade professional orchestra. In 2005 I have started to play Viola. 2006 I was accepted as Violinist at University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, Austria. After one year as I already planned I have officially switched to Viola.

During my time in Vienna I have played often Solo and in many professional orchestras, quartets, trios, duos and bands.

I write and speak fluently most Slavic languages, English and German.
