About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to find out more about myself.

ABOUT ME

I'm obsessed with music and sports, try to share time with good people and travel as much as I can.

PHILOSOPHY

We all need to know/exchange about other ways of life and behaviour, different values and habits in other cultures. You start reflecting your own personality - Awesome :)!

Go out there and explore and don't make everything too comfortable in your life - collect moments, not things!

Deeply influenced by Vedran, an impressive CS-friend, the following sentences of him are fundamental for me:

All lives have equal value.
What you put out is what you get.
Give without remembering.
Honesty attracts honesty.
Do the right thing even when nobody is looking.
Treat others as you want to be treated.
Don't blame others for your mistakes.
Surround yourself with positive people.
It’s not too late.
Don’t let others crush your dreams.
Life isn't always fair.
You are only given a limited amount of time, make it count.
