My first contact with volleyball came through my father, who was a professional player and coach for over 50 years. He was the coach of the National team of Yugoslavia and the coach of National team of Bosnia and Herzegovina. I started to play at 11 years of age and at age of 14 started to play for the junior team of VC Jedinstvo for 4 years, which is where I started to develop my volleyball career. I played from 1986 till 1991 for University of Tuzla’s volleyball team in the first Bosnian division; where from 1987 I was coach/player. When war started in Yugoslavia in 1991, I moved to Germany, where I started to play and coach from 1993 till 1999.
