Quick Facts: Amazing since 1985. Online since 1995. Fanatically devoted to work and friends. Communicates in Serbian or English, but if needed can switch to Russian as well. Understands a thing or two in German, Italian, French and Spanish if in life-or-death situation. Has more true friends than fingers. Believes work hours are for pussies. Knows a ton of computer related abbreviations and isn’t afraid to use them. Won’t talk about problems. Will solve them. Makes a difference. Anywhere. All the time.
Manifesto: Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail again. Fail better. ~ Samuel Beckett
