My ping pong journey began when I was 6 years old, and my father was a well-known ping pong coach in the former Yugoslavia. My dad made a name for himself coaching players such as Ilia Lupulesku, Zoran Primorac, and Aleksandar Karakasevic, who’ve won Olympic, World, and European medals. He went on to coach the US Women’s Olympic team. I decided to join the local ping pong team back in Europe and then continued playing competitively when we moved to the US Olympic Table Tennis Center. I was fortunate enough to win several US Open Junior Titles and represent the US as a youth player abroad before deciding to become an entrepreneur. Now I can show off my skills from decades of elite training and competition as a SPIN PRO in Chicago.
