Who am I? My name is Žiga. Tirelessly looking for new challenges and things that peak my interest. Computers and technology never cease to amaze me and I absolutely love learning about related matters.
In December 2017 I completed undergraduate studies at Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas. My degree is in Computer Science with a minor in Mathematics.
I spent a year and a half soaking knowledge at RSA Security – the pioneer in cyber security industry, where I worked as an intern at the Advanced Security Operations Center.
In my free time I explore ways of utilizing available technology to solve emerging issues. I don’t know how to not constantly be engaged in something I find challenging and/or interesting. Everything I do is aimed towards maintaining curiosity in life itself, which consequentially keeps on bringing me happiness. If finding purpose in the things I do is the outcome, they simply can’t count as work – it’s something I enjoy doing.
I love achieving goals. More than that, I love the journey leading up to achieving them. I perceive all the experiences; failures and victories, as invaluable constituents of who and what we are. There is no such thing as absolute failure, there are only lessons.
Between 2001 and February of this year I had been a competitive swimmer. Not a recreational swimmer who competes once a year, swimming was in fact my life. I am utmost grateful for the moment when i decided to begin my journey as a swimmer, because I seriously doubt I would see and perceive life in the same light otherwise. As my last year of eligibility to compete in collegiate competitions had expired, it was time to start focusing my energy on different areas.
Shoutout to my parents and my family who love me unconditionally – you are the main reason I am who I am.
