About me

I'm Luka, a software designer passionate about building systems and products that have a long-lasting value. My work deeply resonates with my identity; it's an integral part of who I am.

You can find me online on LinkedIn, Read CV, Instagram, Are.na, Posts, Spotify, Apple Music, and Twitter.

I find joy in testing apps, exploring various tools, experimenting with emerging technologies, and turning ideas into tangible solutions. I firmly believe in the transformative power of well-crafted software, the value of compromise, and the beauty of simplicity. I am an optimist. I understand the significance of effective leadership and collaborative teamwork. I'm passionate about creating music, engaging with like-minded individuals, and pursuing photography. Additionally, I have a fondness for vintage Apple devices.

I hate bullet points.

I love long-form writing, math, puzzles, native apps, and Oxford comma.

When I'm not behind the screen, you'll often find me on my bike, exploring new destinations. Cycling fuels my creativity and offers moments of reflections.

Feel free to reach out if you'd like to build something great or discuss technology—or anything else, for that matter.
