I was born in Serbia in 1972 and have been living in Germany since 2002. I gra­dua­ted at the Anglistics Department of Belgrade University and also stu­died English Literature at the University of Brunswick, Germany. I have been wor­king as an English trai­ner at lan­guage ins­ti­tutes in Brunswick and have been trans­la­ting prose and poe­try for various lite­ra­ture maga­zines in my home coun­try.

So far I have publi­shed three books of poe­try in Serbian, my mother tongue :



  • Povremeni pre­ki­di sa zujan­jem, Gradska bibi­lio­te­ka „Vladislav Petković Dis“, Čačak, 2000.
  • Sitne iznu­trice, Brankovo kolo, Sremski Karlovci, 2002.
  • Džibra, Brankovo kolo, Sremski Karlovci, 2006.
  • Otvoreni pre­lo­mi, cur­rent­ly in print


The book titles trans­late into English as : Occasional Interruptions with Buzzing, Petty Innards, Husks and Open Fractures, res­pec­ti­ve­ly. The books won two natio­nal prizes for poe­try and two first prizes for poe­try writ­ten in English by a non-native spea­ker at the annual uni­ver­si­ty com­pe­ti­tion in Brunswick, Germany.
