Love playing and watching soccer. My favorite team is Manchester United. One of my favorite and relaxing things I love doing is going on sunny Sunday morning in the summer to my favorite spot in the city at bar Italia on Corydon. I am a huge BMW enthusiast and anything German car related. I used to dance at the Serbian pavilion at folklorama but unfortunately I don't have enough time anymore but I still go and I am a big supporter it's an awesome event in Winnipeg. I always had a huge passion for cars and helping people find the right vehicle for them and I'm one of those guys that's lucky to do what I love. Also my favorite show to watch is Top Gear and The Grand Tour with the same famous trio Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond. 

I'm fluent in English, Macedonian, Serbian, Bosnian, Croatian and Bulgarian.

Sales Consultant

Canadian born but raised in a Filipino household. Out of 5 siblings and being the first born, I'm the only one who's fluent in Tagalog. I Love what I do. I'm a Dancer in the form of Hip-Hop/Breaking. When I can I'll play at a few open gym's for basketball and I'm a big fan of the Toronto Raptors in the NBA. With whatever down time I have left I love to just cruise and drive around the city or travel wherever I can. 

 

I'm a huge car enthusiast and even help run a local car group here in Winnipeg called 204 Gaijin. So if I'm passionate about seeing how people build and treat their vehicles overtime, I don't see why I can't help you find the perfect vehicle.
