About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Full-time multi-tasking on issues related to socioeconomic development and upscaling social innovation, whereas trying to avoid overkill by stretching the leg with a good book, with a trip to the Caucasus or by a bit of sports (climbing, hiking, earlier fencing). Trying not to loose focus in all this. Sometime I actually do succeed. I am one of those lucky, where job takes me to words that are worth to experience. And its not the TOP10 of the lonely planet ;-)

ABOUT ME

A person with interest for the not obvious, respectful and who has got a bit of "sane madness". ....

PHILOSOPHY

"If noise bothers you, listen to it" John Cage

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Bratislava, Pressburg, Prešporok, Pozsony, Wilsonovo... Capital of Slovakia.... happened to be a multiethnic hub, now it´s striving to recover its past. There you would meet me, if I wouldn´t have moved to Vienna.. :-) I have a tiny appartment, with no extra room, but if you don´t mind sharing space, a matrace is available.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Making friends through CS in Israel, Portugal and Spain, Austria, Slovakia, Kosovo and yet more to come ....

Interests

My interests reflect my desire to learn, to experience, to feel and to share the things we have in common and in what we differ.

Music, Movies & Books

Gosh... have i really have to pick something.... ok here you´ve got my eclectic best of:

MUSIC: Tom Waits, Nick Cave, King Crimson, Hiromi, Iva Bittova (i´ll explain :), PJ Harvey, Anthony Hegarty, Richard Bona, all the classics and new giants...especially when these are played in special places, and many other local heros...
Insider recommendation: http://www.arcustemporum.hu/lang/en/

MOVIES: I enjoyed to watch Asian movies. For instance from Kim ki Duk, or Tsai Ming Liang.. they are strangely beautiful. The crazy-sad Man on the Moon is one of my favorites.... PINA, from Win Wenders made me realize something I already knew before, bot somehow forgot...

BOOKS: I love and hate Michelle Houellebecq, he´s my current passion. Chaim Potok touched me a lot. Reading Slovak, Czech, Austrian and Hungarian authors in original reminds me of the privilage of being central European.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Rain in the desert :-) I survived the Marrakesh traffic jam...
Women cooperative around Srebrenica...

Teach, Learn, Share

I guess most of the people appreciate if somebody explains to them the logic of modern fencing ;-) Would be my pleasure..
