About Me

I've got my B.A. in journalism and mass communications from the University of Belgrade. During the studies and for a number of years afterward, I've written for a number of local pop culture and music publications. Moved to the diplomatic service of former Yugoslavia, and after stints in Washington DC and The Hague, left the service when the war began. Remaining in The Hague, I took on a series of research and journalism projects before I started working as a translator for the UN War Crimes Tribunal. Since mid-2015, I've been working as a freelance journalist/writer, writing primarily for online publications and concentrating again on culture and music, but also covering other subjects like general news and modern technology.

My Jazz Story

The first jazz record I had was Art Blakey & The Messengers - Kyoto

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
