NAUI Instructor Trainer, ANDI / TDI / IANTD Trimix and CCR (AP, Meg ),  TDI Full Cave Instructor
His first and last points of interest are caves and wrecks. This goes together with underwater filming and documenting all the diving sites he visits and showing the world beauties that lie beneath the sea surface. He has been teaching tech diving and CCR diving to students and participating in underwater explorations and scientific projects.

He has also been writing articles and reports with accompanying photograhs of his diving adventures for popular diving magazines such as Scuba Life and More (Croatia), Wetnotes (Germany), Duiken (Netherlands), Octopus (France), Revista Outdoor (Portugal), SUB (Italia) and many more.

One of the best experiences, if not the best, is by far the discovery and identification of the Giuseppe Garibaldi wreck - the deepest wreck in Croatia (-123 m), famous Italian armoured cruiser sunk during the First World War. He discovered and filmed the wreck with his team in 2009 and has dived at it a few more times. He has been working on the project of making a documentary film about the wreck which has been shown in shortened version on several national and international diving events so far.

The other major experience of him is the submarine U455 in Italy at the depth of - 125m  which is one of very well preserved German submarines. The view of U455 standing buried in the seabed at an angle of 45 degrees is astonishing.
