Born in 1987 in Sarajevo, Bosnia And Hercegovina, Boris had an opportunity to learn about Nature from his grandparents from the earliest age. When he was 5 years old, his family moved to Croatia and established a new life. Boris had an opportunity to grow up in a small village surrounded by a vast forest, and keep learning about Nature. During his teenage years, his focus was on mountaineering, entomology and organic gardening. By the age of 18, he already had established an organic garden in the forest above the village, where he spent numerous hours reading and learning about Nature. During his early student days, Boris became a mountain guide so he could travel for free. Through the mountaineering club, he has organised three humanitarian events, supporting abandoned dogs and children.
Later on in life, he graduated in Naval Architecture and soon after, left home again. Wales became his new sanctuary in which he developed woodworking skills and established WoodLives in 2017. Since then, he keeps creating unique pieces using reclaimed materials. WoodLives and his beliefs stand for people, art and sustainability.
