Nemanja Djordjevic, Head of Customer Experience at Appy

For as long as I remember, technology, art and science were three crucial elements of interest that shaped me as a person. Naturally keen on understanding people's subconscious needs and always aiming for the "big picture" and "higher purpose". I'm able to think abstractly and understand difficult concepts and theories. I grasp complicated principles quickly and am always open to new experiences that push my own limits and the limits of conventional UX. Calm and accurate when multitasking in short deadlines, I relate to co-workers and clients on their own level by creating a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.
