I am a musician with more than 25 years experience in pop, rock, folk. and other genres.
When I was 8 years old, I started playing piano. 6 years later I already played in a semi-professional Croatian rock band and could gain a lot of experience. We played with almost all the great musicians and bands from the Balkans and I learned a lot of this great people.
Over the time, I have been in various bands where I came in contact with different genres. In addition, I worked as a studio musician in various projects. I have a broad network of great musicians, producers and engineers that I access when needed.
At these days I play bass, guitar, piano and some drums, do recording and mixing.
