Curriculum Vitae (Biography)

I was born in Osijek on 29 December 1961, where I also finished primary and secondary school. After completed secondary education, I enrolled in the Law School of Osijek which I graduated from in 1986 and obtained higher education qualifications and title of bachelor of laws.

After the graduation, I worked in the legal department of company AUTOREPARATURA d.d. (plc.) of Osijek for nine years and in the Council of the City of Osijek for two years where I dealt with affairs in the field of property law and passed the bar exam.
