Project Manager

My story

While studying Media Communications in Maribor, I tried to accumulate as many different skills as possible. I dabbled in video production, project management and website creation. For several years, I was also part of an organisation that, among other things, hosted three Nobel Prize winners.

As the only person from Štajerska in my Optiweb team, I plan websites and make sure that the projects are successful and, above all, effective from the beginning to the end.

Life just gives you time and space; it’s up to you to fill it.

They asked me …

What kind of working environment motivates you best?

I work best in a relaxed environment that offers new challenges each day. There’s nothing like the feeling of satisfaction when you solve a complex problem. The cool office space at Optiweb is definitely another thing that makes work easier.

What does the term “professionalism” mean to you?

Solving complex situations using knowledge and being tranquil, instead of reckless. I believe that professionalism grows through lifelong learning and gaining experience.

If you could be any superhero, who would you be?

Definitely Spider-Man. I’ve always been impressed with how easily and humorously he solves impossible situations. The fact that he moves using cobwebs only further amazes me.

Would you try bungee-jumping?

I like adrenaline and testing my limits but that’s one thing I would never, ever do!
