, editor, photographer, blogger & roaming rambler with a lust for travel, art, culture and justice. I've visited 51 countries and counting.
Born in Slovenia
(then Yugoslavia), I spent much of my life in the U.S. midwest before returning permanently to Slovenia in 2004.I’m a long-time professional
journalist with more than twenty-five years’ experience as a reporter, editor, copywriter and translator. I’ve reported and written extensively on culture, politics, development, travel and Olympic sport.From 2000 through 2012
, I focused almost exclusively on coverage of international track & field and distance running. I covered the last three summer Olympic Games, several World Championships and dozens of other international, continental and regional competitions on four continents. I worked closely with the IAAF, the international governing body
for track and field, first as a chief correspondent and later as an associate
website editor where I oversaw the site’s day-to-day editorial
operations. I regularly reported for Reuters, The Press Association and dozens of newspapers, magazines, and news and specialist websites.
Founder of Piran Café
I'm a frequent traveler and love sharing tips, insights and photos from the road. You'll find quite a bit of that on my G+ stream.
As a photographer, my work has been exhibited in solo and group shows in Slovenia and the United States.
If you're looking to add me to a circle I would suggest topics such as (but not limited to) the following:
If confused, please ask. :)
Travelers, travel bloggers and other kindred spirits:
If you're planning to visit Ljubljana, and have any questions or are seeking suggestions, feel free to get in touch. I'm happy to help in any way I can, and will be delighted to meet up for a drink and even play tour guide for a bit if I'm in town and have the time.
Circling Policy (v 1.1): :)
I enjoy connecting and engaging with people from all walks of life and all corners of the planet. Note however that I'm continually at or very near the G+ 5,000 limit, so as much as I'd like to I can't automatically follow everyone back. That said I regularly remove inactive G+ers, with 14 days of inactivity generally set as the cutoff, to make room for others I'd like to circle.
Rules? Just a few: I will not tolerate racism, hatred, religious extremism or bigotry in any form. Also know that I'm not a fan of cat GIFs or empty profiles.
