I am a Brit, but of Yugo origin. Well, we have to say Serbian now, though when I was growing up in the UK, it was just “Yugoslavia”. We won’t get into the national identity or history side of things – the long and short of it is that after graduation from Nottingham University (Slavonic Studies, of course) I ended up working for the British publisher Longman in Belgrade in 1996. To cut short the intervening 15-year (and counting) period, I am now in Novi Sad, Serbia, and own a growing Serbian-English translation business called Odista. I am also married to the lovely Slađa and have a wee toddler called Luka.
And that’s about it! Apart from that, I have recently started to build a little net presence, which you can also start to explore via my links. In particular, I wanted to start a blog that was about something very few other people could write about, at least not from my standpoint, and that’s mountain-biking in Serbia! There is also SPD Shoes, which is an ongoing project – a site dedicated to bike shoes!
I am also involved in working with young people in a local church, which means spending time, and investing myself (hard work) in teenagers. But that’s for another blog!
If you want to get in touch, I am sure you will find a way! Or just leave a comment. I look forward to hearing from you!
