When did you start loving mechanics, engineering, design, and how did you consolidate all of them through education?
“My love for mechanics and engineering is going way back – from birth since my father was a passionate engineer outside of work, and when it comes to my love for car design – I have been interested in cars from as early as I can remember and I always tried to sketch them. When I was 13 or 14 years old, I have realized that it can be my profession and I persisted on it ever since. Mathematics and Arts have always been my favorite subjects in the school. I completed a double studies program – Mechanical Engineering (Structural) and Industrial Design (Transportation) on “Monash University” in Melbourne.
You are currently working for Opel, many people are dreaming of working for such a company, what is your job at Opel and how does it feel?
“I work as a creative person, as Lead Exterior Designer – for seven years. I’m currently one of ten exterior designers that are responsible for all Opel vehicles. My work starts from the first line that I draw on paper and lasts until the first car is produced. That requires a lot of effort with yourself, sculptors and engineers. I have fulfilled my professional dream and I have that privilege to live it every day.
How much time do you have to visit your homeland, do you come to visit Zvornik and Podrinje?
“Yes, I visit BiH once or twice a year. I am always in Zvornik, where I visit relatives and the graves of my family.
