About Me


Travel, work, enjoy life!


I'm a cheerful guy with love for outdoors as well as nice conversation. I used to work in cancer research in the US (Children's Hospital Los Angeles) and now I'm back in Slovakia working on distance. Let's see whether I can make a life of digital nomad work :-)


Find something you love, and follow it! And try to do something good along the way!

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I've tried both sides of Couchsurfing - surfing and hosting. And I enjoyed them all. I'm very glad for all the nice people I've met on Couchsurfing.


Only the best ones :-)


I enjoy pretty much any outdoor activity! I also like to talk to people with interesting skills, insights and interests. And of course, who doesn't like a cold beer at the end of awesome day!

Doing research on Retinoblastoma (cancer of eye retina).
