Once known as the "girl-on-ice," I grew up a competitive figure skater. Double jumping like there was no tomorrow, I managed to glide my way to a few regional gold medals. 

If I could eat pizza every single day of my existence on Earth, I would. Cheese is my kryptonite.

There has never been a period when I didn't want to be a writer. I remain enchanted by the art of storytelling.

Netflix is cool and all, but I prefer reading. Nothing makes me happier than basking in the sun; book in one hand, iced coffee in the other.

I get unabashedly geeky over three things: astronomy (would venture to space in a heartbeat), exquisite cinematography (Renan Ozturk is my hero) and cutting-edge technology (microrobotics is my jam).  

My parents originally hail from the distant shores of Croatia and Indonesia. I, on the other hand, was born and raised in The County That Can’t Vote Right, Florida.

A dual citizen of the U.S and the European Union, the last four years of my life were spent expanding my awareness of the world; working as an educator in Spain, getting a graduate degree in Sweden and scaling startups in London.

Infinitely curious, I live for building bridges of empathy. Establishing a genuine connection with everyone I speak to is my ongoing goal. By being vulnerable, you encourage others to be, too.

Words are a form of escapism. When I write, I become completely engrossed in the narrative developing on the page in front of me. 

It’s 2019… and I’m still waiting for my Hogwarts acceptance letter. Reppin’ nothing but Ravenclaw.
