In short

I was co-founder and senior digital strategist at Endora, a Croatian IT agency from 2007 until 2015. Back in 2007 my love of the web and my hunt for perfection lead me to Kentico’s back door. Since then we’ve delivered diverse and complex solutions for leading global brands, and in doing so built a specialist Kentico team. Over the years I have learned to love Kentico, and I believe that it offers amazing possibilities with its all-in-one solution for CMS, E-Commerce and Marketing Automation.

In 2015 we transformed Endora into EMAKINA.HR, as we became part of EMAKINA Central & Eastern Europe. EMAKINA CEE was originally founded as the diamond:dogs|group in 1999 in Vienna, Austria, and also has been part of the Emakina Group since September 2015, which is listed on Alternext of Euronext Brussels. The Emakina Group is one of the top three independent digital communication networks in Europe and relies on more than 1000 experts.

After almost 20 years in the IT world, I love to lead projects, consult with clients and especially mentor new developers.
