About Me


To explore and (re)make sense, in general - I am a curious type.


I am kind of a busy student, but when I finally have some free time, I love being around and interacting with people. I like laughing and making people laugh.


I am observing and being fascinated by what I see.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've recently moved to Ithaca to work on my PhD, and I live here with a roommate and two cats. Hopefully, we'll be able to host a few guests this year. Before coming here, I had hosted people back in Budapest, and had been a guest a couple of times.


So far so good :)


I enjoy conversations above all (whether serious or funny), reading, and binge watching American TV shows with the lame excuse that that is my field of academic research.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Almodovar and Tim Burton - I know everybody loves them, so do I. I also love films by Aronofsky (especially Pi), Inarritu (Amores Perros and 21 Grams), Amenabar, and Schnabel. Other film faves include Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Frida, and Mary and Max... there are just too many...
Music - live music in whichever genre, preferably with vocals.
Books - too many to list them, but I'm always open to new suggestions.
