I'm not a coder by nature. I realised that relatively early on after my studies in computer science and telecommunications. There was no question about my fascination for the IT sector – not since my youth on the Commodore 128 – but I was interested in a different perspective: digital transformation – how companies can develop further with the help of new technologies. Accordingly, I didn’t primarily deal with programming languages, but rather business development and project management.
For me, the human aspect, the soft skills, if you will, are always in the foreground. Even if a lot revolves around bits and bytes, in the end it's always about people. That's generally the case at Trivadis, which I really appreciate. Without this attitude, I wouldn't get very far in my day-to-day work anyway. I support companies in becoming more digital and agile. I coach, accompany and lead teams, both internally and externally. Above all, this requires communication and empathy. But of course, it doesn't work quite without technical know-how and having a few figures in mind now and then – which, by the way, I prefer to note with pen and paper.

You guessed it, I'm not someone who has a fancy tool for everything. Instead, I have a very stylish analogue notebook and three different Caran d'Ache pens. Which is also the only thing on my otherwise very meticulously tidy desk. This analogue sketching probably comes from my time before IT and Trivadis. My first degree was in architecture – classical, not software architecture. You could say this is my second passion alongside the digital world – or more generally: my soft spot for design and creativity. Photography is also part of it and has been a topic that has accompanied me since my youth. I also have private projects in these areas from time to time. Currently, I am drawing plans for a building project in Croatia, where I have my roots and am a regular visitor.
Diverse – that's how I would sum up my private and professional everyday life. At work, practically no day is like the other, apart from the regular team meetings. It's fun and the days go by quickly, which I believe is a very good sign. And in my private life it's not exactly regular business either. Besides the creative subjects, I've tried all kinds of sports: martial arts, rowing, yoga, pilates and I played football for a long time. I've stuck to snowboarding and currently I'm trying to move on a regular basis, especially in the gym. Oh yes, and I am a passionate motorcyclist. I ride a Triumph Thruxton, a so-called cafe racer.
The mindset at Trivadis is very modern. The cultural values are not just empty words. It's about teamwork with flat hierarchies and very collegial interaction: if you want to and take on responsibility, you have the best prerequisites here to develop yourself.
So, with me you can take "outgoing" literally. Discovering new things, accepting challenges and taking on responsibility are important attributes for me. The mindset at Trivadis is very modern. The cultural values are not just empty words. It's about teamwork with flat hierarchies and very collegial interaction: if you want to and take on responsibility, you have the best prerequisites here to develop yourself. This environment has helped me a lot, both professionally and personally – and I also try to exemplify and promote this in my teams.
