My love for digital creation has sparked very early in my childhood, in the good ol' dial up times. A typical after school afternoon back then would consist of defining a fictional brand or a website while just barely hitting the ice in time for my evening hockey practice. On my eighteenth birthday, while actively pursuing my professional hockey career, I've decided to follow my creative passion, take a leap of faith and start my own development company. I quickly went from stopping pucks to Emacs and haven't looked back since. 🤘
The bold move to hang up my skates and leave the chilled air of Pro hockey rinks behind has given me invaluable experiences, meaningful life lessons and has built me into the proud, self-taught, driven and hard-working creative producer I am today.
The variety of roles and conquered challenges has given me a broad, well-rounded knowledge of modern experience design, development, business and management, now backed up by well more than a decade of professional experience.
Today my passion lies in creating and producing superior digital products and experiences. The role as the head of our Slovenia region has given me access and an opportunity to surround myself with a talented and handpicked team of skilled craftsmen. Together we take our digital products on an intimate journey, all the way from ideation and development to production and product release. We proudly do it with passion, hard work, quality and heavy attention to detail.
Ideally my spare time is spent surrounded with family, friends and my trusted canine, travelling around the globe, bending iron at my garage gym, watching classical movies, perfecting my camera skills to become the next Scorsese, playing xBox or grilling a mouth-watering steak. My dream is to one day design, plan and build a cosy home for my family using my own bare hands.
