I am a graduate of Translation Studies at the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia. Already as a student I translated numerous short texts of various topics and difficulties, ranging from legal and technical to literary and tourist texts. This also taught me how to conduct rigorous research which I believe is one of my strengths. I also collaborated on a few translation projects, where I realized that creating content is more in sync with my talents and desires. I wrote several short stories, and am therefore adept in various writing styles. I participated in three student exchanges (Nottingham, Toronto, Paris), where I aimed to perfect my language skills and get to know local nature, culture and people. It is my belief that student exchange can help you grow as a person because living in an international context exposes differences and similarities between different cultures you were perhaps not aware of. I completed my internship at Slovenian Book Agency where I learned to use various software more in-depth. Literature, films and traveling constitute a big part of my life, but as an aspiring writer I always thought knowledge is vital to create high-quality content and I have therefore aimed to broaden my horizons by reading books from various disciplines. I strive to become "a well-rounded man" as Nick Carraway put it, so I am eager to engage in any interesting project that enables me to grow as a professional writer.
