About Me


For spelling my name think about Alejandro (Lady Gaga), and cut the "dro" at the end, so "Alejan". Don't choke the "j" like "khkhk" as in Spanish, keep it soft. Voila, now you have the correct spelling. It means Great King in Turkish, which I am unfortunately not.

I work independently as patent consultant during the day, in the remaining time my heart beats for singing, music, theater, cinema, language learning and cycling. Occasionally I perform as actor and musician as well.

I am genuinely interested in history, society and people's stories. I am extrovert guy but I like listening to people. I also like attending concerts. I usually have a guitar with me, but I am a lousy player.

I'd be happy to do language exchange or jamming with the guitar. Sharing crazy stories. Deep talks. Inspirations. The list can go on.

I like travelling in Central and Eastern Europe, learning more about the culture, art, literature and languages. I sweared to myself that I don't want to die before learning a Slavic language. I am studying part-time Slavistics and learning Slovenian and Russian at the moment. Also learned some Czech before. My head became a language soup with a little bit of everything in it. I find languages simply fascinating.


Like a gazelle from the hunter's hand, like a bird from the hand of the fowler, free yourself.
