My name is Emir Musabasic. I’m interested in various aspect of technology so I consider myself as a creative mind who likes to solve puzzles. I enjoy the creative aspects of web development, especially minimalist, clean and easy to use websites. I like to write about technology, product management and getting shit done.
This website is my attempt of trying to leave some kind of mark and to help out others in pursuit for information on how to create things which matter (be it an app, website or a company). I’m not trying to appear like I’ve made it – I haven’t. I’m still struggling so writing here helps me put things into perspective.
On a personal note
I was born in 1981 in Bosnia and Herzegovina where I grew up and lived for the first ten years of my life. My family moved to Sweden where I finished primary school. In 1997 we moved back to Bosnia and Herzegovina where I finished my secondary school. In 2000 I again moved to Sweden where I worked as a web developer and studied as Stockholm University School of Business. In 2006 I was offered a job at Oracle implementing Oracle applications across South East Europe. Since then I have lived and worked in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Albania, Croatia, Serbia, Montenegro and Slovenia. Living in many different places significantly changed my life for the better. I also met my wife during this period and we have been together ever since.
I hold a bachelor degree in Business Administration and Economics from the Stockholm University School of Business where I have just a little bit left to do in order to get my master degree. The reason why I chose to study Business is I’ve been working and playing with computers since I was 10 years old when I got my first PC and I wanted to do something else. Overall, I would say this is something that’s been one of my key characteristics that I’ve identified over the years – I’m a person that would rather deal with many different things than focus on only one area.
This page wouldn’t be complete without showing of the family pet. Krpica (Tissue in English) is our dog and is a breed mixture my wife found on the streets of Sarajevo. It makes her even more unique and while all pet owners are proud of their pets and feel they are special we can for certain say Krpica is unique and at least getting a similar dog is not probably not possible. There is only one Krpica.
