Pale was born in 1973 in Zagreb, Croatia. He loves life, people, nature, and an active life under the open sky.

After completing his education in technical college he began his trips around the world, where he discovered his passion for sailing and finding a life in balance and unity with the nature. Through sailing he fell in love with his country, its coast and islands, culture and people.


During the past 15 years he has as a skipper sailed the entire Adriatic sea, gaining in-depth knowledge of  each bay and lagoon. Together with Suzana, wife and life companion, Pale founded the Green-Blue World association, with the aim of promoting healthy and active life, through  projects like “Nomadria”, “Yoga-sailing” and “Teen sailing Camp”.


As a parent of two sailors, Maša (7) and Andrej (11), he is incredibly patient, sharing the joy for sailing and this particular way of life in harmony with the sea and the nature, to the young sailors.
