About Me


Live my life one day at a time, little by little, and make every day the best.


"A smile is a curved line that sets things straight :)."

I am an alwayshappy, motivated and positive person. I love getting to know interesting people, being with friends, gliding, sailing, diving, fishing, cycling, playing and teaching guitar, taking photos, hiking and being in the nature.

I like to cook. I love beer, italian, indian, chinese (I've even leart how to eat with chopsticks properly :)) and seafood in all amount.

At work (kind of a workaholic) I have lots of responsibilities, so I'm always at maximum.

When not at work, I am like a 5-year-old kid with a huge smile on his face. I love to make stupid word jokes out of the blue and take the mickey out of anybody as long as it is fun. Also like being sarcastic to a point :).

Just to sum it up, tests says I'm an ENTJ personality.

I hope I will have the chance to get to know more about you too :).


I've seen and experienced both ends of life. To me every day is a gift and worth getting up. New people, new stories, new cultures. When not travelling, I enjoy taking the maximum out of my days in every term.

Why I'm on Couchsurfing


"Share as much as I can from the word that surrounds me and eager to learn as much as others are willing to share."

I organize a lot of events (sailing, hiking, eating, sightseeing, music related and parties) everywhere I travel to, especially in my hometown: Budapest. A list of the official ones:
