To be honest this was not planned, I worked for luxury drink distribution company in Croatia. My role in the company was brand manager and over next two years I had a chance to work with one of the leading media companies VICE from France. Experience was overwhelming and result was one of my first international campaigns. Campaign was for Vantguard group brand Gin Mare. I feel very sentimental still to this day when I see that material reused on their social media. My next steps into PR were movie agency, fashion, wine, restaurants, real estate and hotel.

Management, PR, event ….
Yes I know, strange. I still think of myself and very good manager to be honest first. Although I had great cliets in PR segment I still think of myself as combination of both. In some ways good manager is a good PR person. As far as events I love what DIAGO the Luxury Company (DLC) is doing in Italy.
