About me | O meni

I’m just an ordinary person who has an extraordinary job. – Julia Roberts

Hi, my name is Anina Oštrić. Just like Julia, I am also ordinary person that had a chance to do extraordinary things.

It is well known that About page is the soul of the site, so int his case, welcome to my soul 🙂

I was born and live in beautiful Zagreb, the capital of Croatia and I am MarTech enthusiast. Although I am professional marketer and communicator, it is and always been difficult (if not hardest) to write about myself. I guess in that area I am more IT than Marketing person. And Marketing person in me always places the client in the first place so self-promotion is an area where I still have to work 🙂

So let’s try to cover the basic.

Young AninaO

Since early age I was playful and exploratory, always keen to learn new stuff and improve old stuff in fun and open-minded way. That is probably why I my first real professional love was IT. And all this is at the same time should be eye pleasing, packed in a nice wrapper, an attractive and interesting. That’s my Marketing personality.

Recently, I took some fun test and discovered that I am left right brain balanced and that explained a lot. I mean, I suspected that for a long time but when you receive testimony from a random online test, it must be true, right? 🙂

All kidding aside, I’ve always known – since the early 90’s of the last century – that IT and Marketing are lovers. At first secret lovers however their love became public knowledge since the beginning of this century. But you will read about that in some of my future posts.

If you want, you can learn a lot about me and my personality trough my posts and Facebook profile. I love to cook and eat with my friends. I am crazy about life. I adore dogs and long walks with my Luce. Love to read and write. Love to watch the world around me and listen to good music

If you are interested in my professional path, here it is. I have built my career from my own company, pioneering in a field of IT and Internet, followed by work in NGO and small company that that led me to the Head of Marketing position in international company. After several years, my It personality prevailed and I accepted a new challenge to become a business analyst and after just a few months the project manager, which is a very inborn position (visible between the lines of my CV). You might say I almost tried it all and extracted the best of various experiences. If you are interested to learn more about my professional path, visit my Linkedin profile, take a look at some “work&play” things  or drop me a mail.

In all my professional roles I was marketing guru and technology whiz that created miracles and pushes all the boundaries with small or no budget at all. I am used to wearing many different hats and sincerely enjoy it and thrive to work in an environment where no two work days are exactly the same.

In addition to being flexible and responsive, I am also a fanatic for details – particularly when it comes to seeing a bigger picture and that requires out of the box thinking.

Last but certainly not least, I am passionate about life, my work and doing things that will create better place for all of us. Also, I believe that you never stop learning and that every day provides opportunity for personal and professional growth.

I love what I do for a living and try as hard as I can to help others find a way to do what they love.

I am always interested in a challenge and enjoy side projects of all kinds. So if you have one for me or just want to drop me a note to say hi, I am only a email away – anina.ostric {at} gmail {dot} com – Love to hear it from you!
