About Me


Life is short – enjoy it!


I am a strong thinker, always curious how the world operates on the larger scale. I tend to be more abstract (interested in culture, economy, philosophy or science) than concrete (I am not so interested in customs, stuff, cooking or sports).

I am an avid reader, but I rarely read fiction. I prefer to read and learn about topics that I am interested in. I NEVER watch TV.

I am calm, positive and friendly. I can be chatty and nice with everybody, only exception is when people get racist or rude, that just triggers me to make fun of them.

I am really happy when I am in a good company or when I get in to the "flow"€.

I am not religious but I have strong sense of fairness and justice. You don't need a religion to be a good person.

I am a good listener and a bad dancer. However, if you buy me a few drinks, I will show you some of my dance moves so we can laugh together :)

I love going out & partying but I hate folk music and I hate recent MTV hits (I guess that comes with age, when I was younger I loved MTV, haha).

I decide fast, but I am easy to admit I was wrong on something.

I am liberal and open to new ideas, but I hate ideas without good arguments. Book from some conspiracy theorist doesn'€™t classify as a good argument.

I have a special requirement for couch requests; if you want to surf my couch start your message with "Numa Numa"€. No Numa Numa, no couch.

I didn't like corporate mentality, so I have my own company. I love being independent.

I make good money, but I am not a fan of fancy places. I feel more relaxed in a hostel than in a Hilton.

I have high self-confidence and low tolerance to boredom. This is where you come in, if you are interesting and share some of the values with me I would really love to meet you :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I am in CS from 2008, did both hosting and surfing. However, I mostly use CS to meet people while traveling (meeting/gatherings, activities or contacting nearby CSers). Actually, on my last Thailand/Malaysia/Bali trip I meet so many cool people that now I prefer solo travel – you are more open to new experiences and people when you don’t travel with your countrymen.


Hosted in Zagreb:
Yuri, who hitchhiked all the way from Netherlands in flip-flops :)
Shahnaz from Canada.
Mimi and Annabelle from Germany.

Sarka in Prague.
Milan in Berlin.
Sandro in Berlin.
Han in Kuala Lumpur.

From showing Zagreb, CS meetings & gatherings & activites: see friends list and references.


I love going out, meeting cool people, learning about the world, learning about cultures, traveling. I am a big fan of Wikipedia and TED. I love creating stuff; writing, programming, developing my business and starting new projects.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
