thinking of Matija

For once, to speak for real: The pain, the sorrow for a broken life An ending of a great ordeal A finale of an epic strife For those you left in silence and despair In strangled fervour of a fate unfair The hopes and dreams by all the gods betrayed Here, and beyond You wished […]

Thanks for the inspiration!

I first met Matija on a freelance workshop he organised a few years ago. Back then I was just testing the waters with my early and shy attempts at working as a freelancer. I remember feeling isolated and scared as those days I was the only freelancer I knew. That workshop opened a whole new […]

A precious friend

Ten days have gone by since the death of Matija, and I am still having trouble facing up to the fact. I wanted to write something, but the words would not come. As if writing about the fact that he was no longer with us would force me to admit that it was true. I […]

Coffe! When? In 5 mins. OK!

At that point I was I the worst shape I can remember physically and mentally, but somehow […]

Condolences from Belgium

I only met Matija a few times, but his enthusiasm and insights were inspiring and made a big difference for EFIP and the European Freelancersweek in particular. On behalf of FEDIPRO (Federation of Independent Professionals in Belgium) I want to express our condolences to Matija’s family. – Marc Mestdagh

This pivture tells everything. During that time, I was going through divorce, my brother who I was close to moved to Canada and my job was kinda boring to me. I needed challenges and positive change. Matija was there at the time and pushed me to see behind my beliefs. He learned me how to […]

November 2014. What an epic Copass Camp it was. Among the many great people I got to share this huge appartment with in the center of Lisbon, I can still remember this very special moment I spent with this very sweet Croatian guy. There were several of us campers, you were back from an expedition […]

We will miss him very much as a person and also his power and leadership for EFIP and the European Freelancers Week. Our thoughts are with Matija’s […]
