Although I have spent most of my life skiing, snowboarding and nurturing creative ideas as an advertising executive alongside my dad, Media Marketing, Dragan Sakan and my dear New Moment New Ideas Company, I am a psychologist by profession.

In 2006, I left my exciting and creative job in communications to live in Kazakhstan and, later, India. My Asian encounters were fascinating. The unique regard for life, the equanimity found in the chaos of the streets, and the pervasive tranquility that engulfs one, simply amazed me.

For a decade, I dedicated myself to the profound study of healthier ways of living, the teachings of the East, yoga, the wisdom of the inner peace and ancient, natural healing modalities.

Someone who once was in love with creative ideas, however, remains in love forever. And thus, here I am again. It was a tremendous joy to participate in the creation of this first review of the most creative ideas from the fantastic Adriatic region. I am grateful to all the authors for the crazy good ideas I went to sleep with each night whilst working on this book. You totally rock!

In addition to good ideas, I love life, veggies, yoga, and the fresh powder snow under my Burton board. My favorite smoothie is called the Deep Blue Sea.
