Iva and hrvoje are building crowdfunding platform
I'm electrical engineer working in telecommunication company. Beside this daily job I'm prusite of building croatian crowdfunding platform. I like to spend time on education (phD), friends and traveling.
I have a degree in sociology and history and looking and working in sales. I highly enjoy traveling, and therefore I have a mission to be convinced that flying is not that big of a deal :)
What best describes me is that my glass is always half full, if not full to the top. I could also say that my philosophy is Seinfeld one.
Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
We like to provide things to fellow travelers which we would appreciate on our travelings. Offering not only accommodation but domestic cosy feeling.
Both (surfing and hosting) of our CS experience has been unique. Getting some cool in pool in Aleppo, learning Chinese in Beijing as well as showing Zagreb to city-breakers and packing sandwiches for hitchhikers.
I'm interested in technical science as well as social science. More importantly I have biggest interest in tools for building social capital. I'm somewhat involved in Croatian startup community and leading a project of first Croatian crowdfunding platform called Doniralica.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
I've seen young people taking shitty jobs just to survive, Chinese infants taking a dump on the street through crack in their pants, amazing landscapes contrast and textures across small territory.
I've climbed up and down on mount Hua Shan in China in one day (although everybody in hostel said it's impossible) and most
important I've meet wonderful girl back in '98 :)
