Nije nosilac društvenih priznanja. Nikada nije učestvovao na izložbama niti je nagrađivan. Nema prijavljenih patenata. Nikada nije bio član umetničkih udruženja, političkih partija ni bilo kakvih interesnih grupa iz oblasti umetnosti. Nikada ne nastupa kao umetnik, već kao radoznao čovek. Nijedan od izloženih eksponata nije pravio po narudžbini, iz materijalne dobiti ili sa željom da ih ponudi tržištu. Jedina svrha truda uloženog u svaki izloženi eksponat je lično zadovoljstvo.

I was born in 1952 in Šabac, Serbia, and moved to Belgrade when I was six.
I have been dealing with digital electronics since elementary school when that domain was of little interest to anyone. After unsuccessful attempts to enrol in the High School of Electrical Engineering, and later the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, I started with my self-education and work in digital electronics as a freelance constructor.
Since the mid-1970s, I have been designing and building my own microcomputers, video systems for computer animation and many commercial projects. In 1982, I developed the first microprocessor-controlled security system in Southern Europe, which was produced in more than 300 units and used to protect most Yugoslav banks and post offices. In the same year, I also developed and produced a line of systems for sports timing, named Arbitar, which were used for official timing in many ski championships.
In 1983, I presented Yugoslav enthusiasts with the DIY project for the first Yugoslav microcomputer “Galaksija” (Galaxy). It was published in the first Yugoslav computer magazine “Računari u vašoj kući” (Computers in your home) and built by more than 8000 DIY enthusiasts. This microcomputer is now a part of the Computer History Museum’s exhibition in Silicon Valley. Following this, I published between 50 and 100 DIY open projects and over 300 articles within the digital domain.
Since 2000, I have been the founder of the opposition to all mystics, prophets, astrologers, quacks and other fraudsters. I have published two books on this topic, “Are there things that do not exist” and “Kremansko neproročansvo” (Kremna non-prophecy). Both of them are available at voja.rs (in the Serbian language only).
In 2017, I moved to Pasadena, California, where I work as a hardware engineer. You can read the story of my life at https://hackaday.com/2015/08/03/hacking-the-digital-and-social-system/. Some of my later projects are available at https://hackaday.io/Voja.
