Short biography

After being born and spending young years, including primary school, in a smaller town Novo mesto in Slovenia, I have moved to capital Ljubljana to attend first secondary school and then university.

As I have always had a big and ever growing interest in cars, I found myself a position at one of the biggest Slovenian motoring magazines right after starting university (University of Ljubljana, first Mathematics and then I switched to Journalism). Soon thereafter I began working for Slovenian national television, first as a journalist covering motorsport and later on being qualified as a news anchor.

During that time I met the publisher of motorsport magazine and started working there also, gradually switching from TV to print media. After leaving the job at TV, I remained managing editor of Grand Prix magazine and also started working for ad-agency - from design to copywriting.

I remained in basically same company until now (although it has gone through many changes and owners), first becoming Chief editor of Connect magazine (IT), then Avto magazin (automotive), being promoted to publisher, digital medaia & men's magazines (while remaining Chief editor of Avto magazin) and now developing all of AML Bussines Media, Content Marketing and some digital projects.
