He then worked as a journalist and editor in the newspapers Jež[2] and Duga along with the newspaper for children called Mali jež. He also published columns in various newspapers and magazines such as NIN and Politika. In the meantime, he published his first children's book Bosonogi i nebo and later his first collection of aphorisms Piši kao što ćutiš. He entered into the literary scene under the pseudonyms Vinon Rumski and Branislav BIP.

He was one of the screenwriters for the 1987 film The Harms Case.
