Had an early encounter with the PCs and technology behind them at the end of the '80s. Started coding and hacking while still in elementary school, continued throughout the education. Dropped out of university to pursue freelancing career in graphic and web design. Settled down in full-time graphic assistance job in local printing shops and graphic studios, but never really gave up coding carreer. In late 2013 made a full-time switch to web development, never looked back. Avid amateur astronomer and photographer. Married without children.

    Dusan is a very diligent and duteous employee. He developed very quickly the ability to lead the development team and achieve or exceed the set targets. Our team was ablе to work very well together and Dusan's easy-going nature and sincere kindness played a key role in that dynamic. I strongly recommend Dusan for any development / lead development position for which he applies.
