About Me

I'm a 27-year old video game designer living in Ljubljana.

I'm highly curious; I would taste, touch, try, smell and feel ANYTHING new.

I observe a lot. I listen a lot. I like sharing stories.

I find words Beautiful.


I'm passionate about music. I'm thirsty for new sounds, shivers.

I'm fascinated by languages and etymology. I collect books in foreign languages. I dream of being able to pronounce as many languages as possible.

I'm also craving for any experience/encounter that would enlighten me more on Human psychology and relationships of any kind.

I like to stop and drink tea in the most ceremonial way possible.

Music, Movies, and Books

One movie: Babel by Iñárritu.

One book: La vie devant soi by Émile Ajar.

One song: Keringő by Thy Catafalque.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can talk about languages and linguistics forever. I get very excited about it.

I love sharing music. I listen mainly to metal, post-rock, traditional folk, electronic, and minimalist music. If that's not your thing, we can listen to ABBA. Everyone loves ABBA.

I can also teach you the basics of Tuvan throat singing. Really.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Great things! But, if you do send me a request, you'll have a MUCH higher change of getting accepted if:

1 - You request is at least 1 week in advance.
2 - Your request is personalized.
3 - Your request is for 1-2 days.

When writing your request, keep in mind that I get dozens of requests every week for the same dates.
