Seven Questions With... Ivan Djuricic
There are certain people in your life that can inspire you every single time you see them, and we all probably know at least one person who is like that. Ivan Djuricic is that kind of person, he is the "let's get it moving" kind of a guy, and just in case that you don't want to get moving, somehow his aura will get you moving. Fascinating, but truly inspiring at the same time. Ladies and gentlemen, meet Ivan!
1. Share three things about yourself. Ready, set, go!
Friends sometimes call me a walking juke-box, I really love music festivals and I practiced Capoeira Angola for quite some time
2. How would you describe your day job to a child?
“Want to make a simple game we can play? Let’s do it together!”
3. What is the favorite part about working for Symphony?
Without a doubt: people around me. Every single person contributes to the atmosphere you can rarely find.
4. What’s your favorite aspect of your job?
It pushes me to be better than the best I am now. In every aspect, both personal and professional. Every day.
5. If you could have a drink with anyone, (fictional, alive, dead, famous, non-famous) who would it be?
I’d say Douglas Adams. Both “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” and his talk “Parrots, the Universe and everything” (parts of the book “Last chance to see”) got me thinking that he is one of the greatest minds ever.
6. What is your hidden talent?
Hidden and probably the most useless: Yo-Yo spinning
7. Recommend us a movie to watch or a book to read.
For a movie, I would say “Man from Earth” or “12 Angry men” and for a must-read: “Three men in a boat” by Jerome K. Jerome. Cute little book, full of funny moments about everyday life, written almost 130 years ago, where you can see how some things never change.
