Second turn 2003, leaving international development world and move toward a local innovative experience that is today the owpsee platform.

dejan georgievski, information and knowledge - firstname.lastname@example.org Born in 1971. Formative years spent in his home-town of Sveti Nikole, where he completed elementary and secondary education. His pursuit of rock and sports stardom failed miserably. Earned a degree in English Language and Literature instead. Soaked in the idea of global revolution from the earliest age, but later revised his position slightly and became democratic socialist. Worked for the imperialist powers for a number of years, but escaped that predicament successfully, and moved to the less lucrative but more satisfying life in the civic journalism sector. Likes American bands and kung fu films. Can be seen zooming around Skopje and Sveti Nikole on his bicycle, or zooming in his car around the Balkans. Lived in Sarajevo for couple of years. Lives and works in Skopje, but would move again, provided there is sufficient reason and room for his guitars.
