Website and social media
I like to describe myself as a child and geek who likes to learn new things and face new challenges. Born and raised in Zagreb, I was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy in my early childhood, and am a very active disability rights advocate in Croatia. I'm a journalist, translator, and columnist for possibly the only European disability news portal, called In Portal. I'm also CEO/President of Croatia's best disabled chess club, Šahovski klub "Stjepan Bosak" — URIHO. Other than that, I'm a co-founder of WordCrypt, where I've been helping with everything — from graphic design and programming, to 3D video production and social media marketing.
