Marija has a degree in Journalism and Public Relations. She was involved in various media projects that often closely thematized the issues and challenges of ethical reporting in media, self-regulation, and the responsibilities of journalism. She also worked at European Economic and Social Committee in IT and communications. But with years of experience in creative media, she mostly finds her inspiration in the strength of visual delivery of information through photography, as much as she admires the creativity of witty and intelligent writing and finally, a well-executed layout and design. At Nextcloud she got more involved in privacy and data ownership ethics, using her past experiences to contribute in the areas of PR, design and communication.
Nextcloud.Nextcloud provides storage for your data and a way to share documents and collaborate in a document at the same time just as in Google Docs. But this is secure, under your full control and developed in an open, transparent and trustworthy way. A competitive advantage?
