Chess has been my passion from an early age. I started to play chess when I was 6 and played in my first tournament when I was 11. Due to many school obligations, I never had enough time to seriously work on my improvement. I received the FM title in 2009 and have earned 2 IM norms. The first was in Paraćin, in July 2008, and the second in Kharkiv, Ukraine in March 2010. Besides playing chess I am also a chess arbiter and chess organizer. I was awarded the FA (FIDE Arbiter) title in 2009, and the highest arbiter title IA (International Arbiter) during 2012, and the IO title (International Organizer) in 2013. The most important tournaments in which I was an arbiter were: at the European Club Cup in Rogaška Slatina, Slovenia in September 2011, at the 13th European Individual Chess Championship in Plovdiv, Bulgaria in March 2012, where I was an arbiter for the top 15 boards with 2700+ players, and at the 23rd European Youth Chess Championship in Budva, Montenegro in September/October 2013. In the period of 1994-1998, I organized International OPEN Junior Chess Tournaments in Paraćin. Back in 2008, I started to organize the International Chess Festival in Paraćin each summer. Nowadays, this Chess Festival is the most important chess event in Serbia and one of the best in the region. Each year number of participants is increasing (in 2019 app. 400 participants from 30+ federations all over the world). More details are available at our official web site www.paracinchess.rs I am also the Founder and President of a local chess organization called Youth Chess Club "Paraćin". We have a very famous chess school and team and single tournament successes in all categories. From November 2019 I perform the duty of Rating Officer for the Serbian Chess Federation.
