A jack of all trades is a master of none, but oftentimes better than a master of one."
I followed that quote most of my life and I didn't even know it. I've assembled water pumps, deliver beer, fridges and washing machines with truck, and even helped people decide on their new facade colour by painting their houses in photoshop.
I’ve heard somewhere that developers are paid better and decided to give that a shot. After a few ‘hello worlds’ a guy said, “you will do well in my company” and put me in project management, so of course I created workshops for clients, presented our products, helped with technical support and dabbled with DevOps in my spare time. I learned valuable lessons such as “automate everything” and “never trust a computer”.
I’ll pick up any excuse to learn a new skill or challenge my existing ones. If you can think it, you can make it.
My creative outlet of choice is finding new combinations of spices, oils, food and of course, wine. Cooking, wine tasting or just eating great food is always an option. Just please, keep the veggies on the minimum.
Besides cooking, my biggest passion are cars and driving. I can talk about them any time you want, and I’ll pick up any excuse to sit in a car and go for a drive.
Weekends are of course reserved for road trips where my wife and I explore little natural and culinary gems that Slovenian countryside has to offer. Honourable mention to our cat Krištof that thought he was a dog for half of his life, accompanying us on our forest walks. Now his exercise regimen consists of me throwing his treats all over the apartment every evening.
