In 2013 he received his Master's degree in Nutrition at the Faculty of Food Technology and Biotechnology in Zagreb with the diploma thesis "The balance of water and caffeine intake among professional men and women water polo players".

In 2012 he started the project nutricionizam.hr which aims to be a source of trusted information in the field of nutrition and to give attention to the large number of disinformation in the media which can confuse the individual and can be a negative impact on his health. Within the project he writes articles on the same website and FB page and collaborates with many clients, mostly recreational athletes.
He held a number of presentations on the principles of adequate nutrition, sports nutrition and dietary myths in sports clubs and fitness centers.

He summarizes his own approach to nutrition with following sentence: "There are no healthy and unhealthy foods, only adequate and inadequate nutrition" By this he wants to point out that people mistakenly look for the positive or negative effects of isolated components of food on their health, often ignoring the much more important factor, the overall quality of the diet.
