About me

Mato Žgajner - portrait

I'm a 30-year old human from Ljubljana, Slovenia.

I've been tweaking front-ends and writing JavaScript for about a decade - both in companies and as a freelancer. Read about my working experience or contact me on LinkedIn.

When not producing code for my corporate overlords, I help the good people of DJND with parlameter.si or hang out at Radio Študent talking about indie games. You might occasionally find me on stage - telling a story or singing with an a capella group.
