About me

I am a classically trained multilingual actor that graduated at the Academy for Theatre, Radio, Film and Television in Ljubljana. I have since regularly appeared as a part of the main cast in the popular TV series and awarded films and had also been engaged with all the major theatres in the country over the years. Now fully engaged with film, I strive towards diversity of genres as well as the characters.
