I'm a software engineer, entrepreneur and consultant and have been working in the software development
field for over twenty years. In that time I've worked on a range of software projects — from minimum
viable products (MVPs) to high-impact projects for global household brands.
I've been both an individiual contributor, acting as a software developer or system architect, and lead a
team of people in roles such as tech lead, project manager, product manager, CTO and CEO. This breadth of
experience gave me insights from and appreciation for both the business and technical sides
of software development.
Many of the projects I've worked on leveraged video and audio capabilities, real-time communication, and open
web platforms. This puts me right inside one of the most exciting and dynamic developments in the IT industry
Some companies I worked with include:
Nokia — worked as a software developer
inside Real-Time Communications team building Maemo and Meego operating systems for Nokia N900/N9
Collabora — as a software developer, worked
on the open source Telepathy communications framework, powering chat and voice communications on most
desktop Linux systems today.
Croatian Research and Academic Network —
architected and implemented an integrated video platform that allowed universities and academic
community in Croatia to upload and share video content, including on-demand (transcoded) video and parallel
(video feed + synchronized slides) live video streaming.
Real Digital Signage —
designed the distributed system for media management, delivery and playback for a leading digital signage
provider in Croatia, implemented the front-end, back-end and client-side software and developed a custom
player platform miles ahead of anything else in the market at the time.
Web Whiteboard — founder and CTO of a collaborative
whiteboard solution for educators, teams and enterprises used by millions of people worldwide.
MusicBox — founder, CTO and lead architect of a
music streaming service for the hospitality (HoReCa) and retail sectos providing background music services
for cafes, restaurants, hotels, stores, and similar venues.
I am a big proponent of Open Source and Free Software and have used, advocated for, contributed and
authored open source software for decades. Here's a list of my
open source software and contributions.
I've spoken at various conferences, workshops and meetups about audio/video on the web, software
development methodologies, startups, and software development in general: my speaking
