A Bit About Me ...

I was born in Melbourne, Australia, in July 1970 to Eastern European parents who migrated across from the former Yugoslavia along with my two older siblings. I have always been an avid reader of non-fiction with a passion for writing fiction. In addition to my love for literature, I immersed myself into the mediums of photography and painting for decades.

Although I had been creative all my life, I only began placing my works in the public domain by publishing my newly created fiction in 2013.  It was a brush with death, my personal dance with the reaper that instigated a need to embrace my creative passions. After that, I became devoted to developing an impressive body of work at a vigourous rate. 

"It's Important to have no regrets."

I was driven by a new chance to do things differently. My objective was to transition from being an IT Professional into a full-time writer. However, the desire to become free from constraints held a price. Determined to provide myself the best chance, I knew I needed to let go of all material possessions. This decision resulted in me selling my 17-acre farm in central Victoria, including all the items I had collected across a lifetime. With much sadness, I also arranged homes for my three beautiful dogs and sold my horses. I had to reduce my debt. I wanted to be free to travel the globe in pursuit of my dreams.

The transition was emotional yet cathartic. It was an overdue cleanse of the clutter I had unconsciously amassed. The clearance of items that no longer served me was welcomed. I knew adventure waited to greet me on the path of the unknown. Above all, it was the immense feeling of joy that provided me the courage to move forward.

I incessantly crave to align my life to the ideals of living with a creative purpose.

Truth's Trivia

  • At the tender age of eight years old I wrote the lyrics to my first song.
  • Star was the first abused animal I rescued. This horse taught twelve year old me what it felt like to be truly loved.
  • When I was fifteen I was given a bottle of Rive Gauche (made by Yves Saint Laurent). Its still the only commercial fragrance I wear.
