I am a young cultural entrepreneur working in between Amsterdam and Southeast Europe. I am working for Balkan Buro, an organisation that brings the Balkans closer to Western Europe trough cultural cooperation with artists, musicians and filmmakers. I organise the Balkan Snapshots Film Festival, which has been a popular event since 2006 and will have its 5th edition in 2010!

Further, i am just very curious of what's around, enjoying it fully. My passion for culture comes mainly from the idea it stands for. Expression, the searching for new ways to look at life, new ideas, concepts.. and aestetics, the making of wonderfull experiences, just for the experiences themselves.. I like that.

Contact me anytime if you want to follow what Balkan Buro is doing, if you feel like cooperating, may it be working with us, doing a gig in Kosovo, anything!
