Matjaz Zivkovic. I was born on 30th April, 1980 as the last of three children. I attended Louis Adamic elementary school in Grosuplje, which I finished with excellent results. I was an excellent athlete (handball player) for quite a few years. Besides handball I became very interested in music, hence I finished guitar course in music school.
I continued my education at Šiška Secondary School, where I successfully continued my athletic and musical careers. I graduated in 1998, when I enrolled in the Faculty of Sport, where I successfully completed two years. In this period I became very successful in my musical career, namely with my band D.D.V. and later also with the band The Drinkers. That is why I dropped out of the Faculty of sports. I toured many Slovenian and European stages with D.D.V., becoming largely recognized through my musical career. I became interested in the media, so I started my studies in the Faculty of Media in 2008. I finished my studies in February 2013 with my thesis “The Significance of Multimedia Projects in Societies For The Local Environments”. Due to my successful musical career (videos, albums) I was also invited in numerous reality shows: “Riba na oko”, “Big Brother Celebrity”. For six years I successfully managed the musical society and “Klub Stentbaj”, hosting (as the main organizer) more than 100 different bands, stand-up comedians, photography exhibitions, musical workshops, literary evenings, etc.
My work and work experience mainly include media, multimedia and organization. I have been a part of the media for the last 12 years almost every day on several levels: hosting a music show, shooting music videos, TV shows, production and technical support in TV studios, shows, etc.
Most recently, I worked in London as a broadcast engineer at a leading TV station for twelve months. My tasks included the preparation of TV schedules for world famous TV channels, changing banners, filming, archiving, installation, in short, everything that has to do with television production.
As someone who has studied media production I have become involved with different kinds of multimedia and I enjoy it very much. My work is predominantly independent, but it is also team-oriented, with everyone equally responsible for the final result. I do a lot of fieldwork, which I also enjoy. I feel I have been enriched by my experience and looking forward to new challenges every day. I remain an optimist, very dynamic, upbeat and open to new challenges.
I see a great deal of common ground for collaboration and mutual benefit in the position I am applying for. Please find enclosed my CV and work experience.
