|I was born in 1943 in Ljubljana, Slovenia, and graduated from the University of Ljubljana with a degree in electronic engineering. I obtained my Ph.D. in bio-mechanical engineering and worked in the field of biocybernetics for 15 years before transitioning to geophysics. Due to my work on large seismological projects, I have traveled to 45 countries on five continents, and have always been in awe of the beauty of nature. I am retired and reside in the Trenta Valley, located in the heart of the Julian Alps in northwest Slovenia. Apart from my professional career, I am keenly interested in music, books, photography, and mountaineering. Nature photography has been my passion, and I am grateful to several people who have generously shared their knowledge and expertise about nature with me. They have helped me identify species in my photos and have led me to stands of rare and interesting plants that I would never have been able to find on my own. I want to express my special gratitude to Dr. Igor Dakskobler, Dr. Branko Vreš, Prof. Dr. Nejc Jogan, and Prof. Dr. Tone Wraber (botany), Mr. Branko Dolinar (Orchids), Prof. Dr. Ronald Lanner (Conifers), Mr. Gregor Podgornik, Mr. Anton Poler, and Mr. Bojan Rot (Fungi), Mrs. Sanja Behrič (Myxomycota), and Dr. Bojan Zadravc (Lepidoptera).
|Special interests: Plant, fungi and lichen world of west Slovenia and surrounding regions from north Adriatic Sea to Julian Alps - a small region, but with exceptional biodiversity and rich mixture of alpine, submediterranean and Dinaric elements.
