I'm an open minded, socially inquisitive guy, who likes to immerse into passionate conversations about art, movies, people and society. I love travelling, playing the piano and the melodica. From time to time I try to say goodbye to the mainland, when it gets too much (which is often), and go scuba diving (when I have the money, which is less often, unfortunately). I even love my job, or most of the time I do (stage directing, one of the most thrilling opportunities for collective and creative thinking), but above all, I enjoy intense and revelative conversations over a bottle of wine with people who have their own ideas and thoughts to share, especially those who have irony and self-irony -- which, as years go by, I tend to consider the most important quality in anyone, including myself. I have my days of blue, of course, and they can be stubborn sometimes, but if I pretend they're not there, they leave after a while (yes, I know there are other ways), and they never affect my hospitality.
Come and stay, enjoy the city, have a nice talk or play some music together. Bring your humour. If I'm free from work we can also drink some beers in one or more of the 'ruin pubs' or retro gardens of Budapest.
Saving the world through my job on better days. Saving the world over a beer or wine on worse days. Finding out that none of that matters on the best days.
