Vladimir Kašnar was born in Zagreb on April 27, 1946. From an early age, along with regular schooling, he studied foreign languages and music. His broad interest in culture continued throughout high school, when he was active in Muzička Omladina (Musical Youth). He graduated from the Classical Gymnasium in Zagreb in 1964 and graduated from medical school in 1970 from the University of Zagreb. Following military service and two years working at the Institute for diabetes in Zagreb, he moved to New York, where he completed his psychiatry training at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in 1977. Since then, he has worked as a clinician and educator at New York Medical College, as well as independently in solo practice as psychiatrist/psychotherapist. His poems have appeared in Croatian translation in Poezija, and in English in Carpatian Health Resort (It’s a Riot Press). His website is www.vladimirkasnar.com
