I’m a generalist full stack software developer with special interest in scaling web technologies, test driven development, tooling, devops practices and agile workflows.

I started programming when I was 11, using BASIC on the Commodore 64. At that age playing computer games was fun, but actually coding the games myself – well that was just a blast. Having a brother who was as eager to learn and discuss coding, kind of meant I got to be in a team of developers even before I finished primary school. Even before the Internet took off, I was immersed in the international demoscene culture, running my own BBS and connecting with minds alike worldwide.
Fast forward to now and I’m a software developer / architect with experiences ranging from the bits of bytes of 8-bit computers to developing modern web applications and designing and maintaining the accompanying tech stacks.
I’m an avid reader and learner, I like to socialize and participate in developer communities and I strive to live a healthy life (good food, sports, meditation).
I consider myself to be:
- Test driven and developer friendly when writing code
- Lean and data driven when making decisions
- Purpose driven when learning new things
I’m also a fortunate and proud father of two (Tadej and Andraž) and a husband to my wonderful partner in life Liljana.
