Originally from Serbia/Croatia, I have spent the last 25 years (and most of my life) living in New York City. Over the last 8 years I have been working in Commercial Real Estate as a consultant. More recently, however, I am trying to get into the United States Marine Corps Officer program (OCS), which has proven to be highly selective and very competitive. In the meantime, I am coaching The New York City Skyliners Ice Hockey team out of Long Island City - a dedicated group of talented and skilled 15/16-year-olds. Ice hockey is my passion and in addition to coaching I still play at a competitive level here in NYC. I am a very competitive individual driven by challenge and defined by my leadership skills. I love getting to know new people and traveling over the years has helped me better understand who I am and where I fit in. I strive to give back to any community I am part of and above all, I seek to have fun.
