About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Be happy, enjoy life and give a pleasant life to my children and to my wife. Life is a game I'd rather play it while having fun ;)

ABOUT ME

I grew up in a city in Hungary that I really loved. Then I lived 5 years with my wife and kids in Budapest (capital of Hungary) but we were longing for something much different. So after a bold idea in 2006 and lot of planning we moved to New Zealand in 2009. We picked this place due to its natural beauty: the woods, the ocean, the mountains and the atmosphere you can enjoy in the wildlands and among the kiwis (I mean the people :))

I'm working in the IT sector but I was a railwayman for three years and I'm still a fan of every type of trains and vehicles travelling on rails.

I enjoy playing strategy games (boardgames and PC games as well) but have fun with my almost 3 years old son is getting better and better (and more time consuming, too :o))

I try to maintain and constantly improve a spiritual and ethical level based on Rudolf Steiner's thoughts described in his books of/about anthroposophy.

PHILOSOPHY

I began with the purpose of enjoying life as much as I can regardless of anything outside myself. Then I've become more aware of the fact that no human or earthly being is independent from each other. Since then enjoyment has become less and more important. Though it's a bit paradox it just means that it's best to be glad about others' happiness and living my life by giving as much happiness to others (especially to those few who are really close to me) as I would like to have :o) Having been father of two kids the moral and ethical side of enjoying life is becoming more and more significant. I try to be a responsible human inside the ecology (that's why I chose to be a vegetarian) by being aware the consequences and by teaching my kids to live a good life. Or not just one but I'm not that smart to handle this at the moment :)

Interests

sightseeing

Music, Movies & Books

My favourite book/movie genres are fantasy and sci-fi. I prefer reading than watching movies and since only a small percentage of the really good books are filmed that's not a problem :) Currently I'm reading David Louis Edelman's Infoquake trilogy which is an awesome sci-fi/business/IT novel. My favourite fantasy series is Steven Erikson's Malazan cycle which is almost unbeatable for me. In terms of sci-fi I think Dune and Asimov's Robot stories are the ones that really captured my intellect and emotions as well! Regarding to movies I like the peculiar ones that approaches aspects of life from a different point of view (e.g. District 9 - if you had seen it you would know what I'm thinking of :)) and I'm a fan of wacky comedies like Ace Ventura. With my son I relive my childhood by watching old Disney toons (Ducktales rocks) and many other cartoons.
