Ivan Paunovic grew up in The Balkans, known for music spanning numerous cultures. At 14, he began doing photography and composing music, and today creates exciting tracks in various music genres, as well as stock photography and video. Highly regarded by his peers, Ivan won three first place awards in Serbian Music Festivals and a second place in one of the international photography contests. Years of experience, talent and hard work are paying off for Ivan, with hundreds of his tracks now featured in films, documentaries, commercials, his first CD out on a major Serbian label, and thousands of photographs featured in electronic and printed media. With a recent move to California, Ivan's future is looking so bright he needs several pairs of shades.
