About Me

It's Mate (pronounced Mahtey) from Hungary.
Present: I'm a a full-time credit controller working for a global alcohol beverages company & part-time photographer, part-time college student (economist in commerce & marketing), a part-time language learner.

Past: I was a pharmacy student in Debrecen, Hungary, didn't like it, so I "resigned". Then I've been working on a cruise ship for 2 years as a professional wedding & portrait photographer, so I've been a lot of places around the Caribbean, and got lots of exprerience, (and took hundred thousands of pictures).

Fun fact: I love ice hockey! My fav is the Boston Bruins, and my home team, the Miskolc Polar Bears... :)
