Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
There is a saying: “It never gets easier, you only get stronger”, so I think that would answer your question.
When I look back and analyze, there is always a mixture of hardships and easiness in life. It is never black or white, therefore, we are all in the same boat with that unwritten rule of balance…
What would be your advice to fellow ladies in the industry?
My advice to the ladies that are just starting their journey would be to take every advice or even an encouragement with a grain of salt… another saying: “Only in Hollywood you can die out of encouragement,”lol… So, ladies, stay smart and rational!
Please tell us more about your work, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
Well, I have nothing much to say but to continue doing what I do and work on my craft. Currently, I am composing music for the movie “Coven”, creating digital content for companies in my favorite field of technology and fitness, soon to start working on a pilot show after the movie, so that’s about it. I am always proud of people I work with, and not sure if that is a pure luck, but the close people I work with are inspiring, fun, unique individual.
We noticed that you love sports and workouts?
Yes. I have grew up training tennis (I am from Serbia, remember haha) and after that when music took over, I still remained a hidden, failed athlete at heart,haha. Seriously, my free time is always reserved for tennis or intense hikes.
Which women have inspired you in your life?
Women that have inspired me in life: My mother, because, even while being a bad cop throughout my childhood, now I can see the bigger picture. I see how much trouble I caused in general and she still have patience and nervs, haha…for more…haha.
Aside of my mom: Jane Fonda, Nicole Kidman, Lana Del Rey, Natalie Portman, and Oprah Winfrey. These woman have that X factor which requires more than a few sentences to talk about.
