Data matters and I am passionate about data; each project is a new story to be told, each time using different tools and methods, which makes the whole journey more exciting every time. I enjoy passing my knowledge and experiences to my students, from graduate to elementary school.  I love advocacy challenges and making the world a little bit more just place that has an opportunity for everyone independent of gender, race or nationality. Traveling, learning different languages and cultures are my favorite hobbies. Besides English, I speak German, Spanish and I am native in Croatian.
