I was Born in 1964 in small mining town, Trbovlje, in the middle of Slovenia. I studied Geography and Arts. After graduating, I started to teach at a local elementary school, but I run away from there after the first year and instead found a freelance job as a Graphics Designer and Illustrator. I have been drawing comics since I was 3 years old. Over the last few years, I have been working mostly in multimedia, Internet, and programming (mostly games). Currently, I am in the middle of establishing my own animation and computer games studio (www.bugbrain.com).

My first contact with Xara came, when the editor of computer magazine gave me an assignment to write a review. Those were the times of old 486 computers and buggy Windows 3.1. At the time, I was using CorelDraw for design and illustrations. I remember that it used to take forever for Corel to refresh the screen preview every time I did a simple action. It was a nightmare! Those were the days when only computer maniacs, such as me, were using computers for these things.

When I tried Xara, it was love at first sight! Screen refreshing was at least 10 time faster than in CorelDraw, not to mention there was some really cool stuff, like fast bitmap manipulation, transparencies and more.
