Rozman's musical career led from the Academy of Music in Ljubljana to the Valencia campus of Berklee College in Spain, where he gained a lot of knowledge and acquaintances.

How he landed a job with Zimmer, in his own words:

“In May 2014, Berklee organized a recording with the 54-piece orchestra in the famous Air Studios in London, where Hans Zimmer also recorded music for many of his films. I spotted Mr. Zimmer on the very first day of our arrival, and on the second day I ran into him in the canteen. We chatted for a while and I mentioned that I’m working on music analysis of the Gladiator film for my master’s thesis. A couple of months later I posted my recording on an online forum Hans Zimmer regularly visits, too (https://vi-control.net/portal/.), without knowing that he will actually listen to it.
A few days later he called me on the phone and told me that he genuinely liked what I had recorded and that he had plans for me in the future. Over the next four years he followed the work I posted on Facebook. Last May I contacted him via Facebook messenger and he gave me his phone number. I called him and asked if there was any chance to come and work for him and got offered composer position. I will be one of the twelve composers in the team. This will certainly be an exceptional experience. I am moving to Los Angeles for a two-year period.”
