About Me


"I know, I know for sure that life is beautiful around the world."


Smiling for reason (which fortunately I often have).
Like to talk a lot, but also a curious asker and patient listener.
Love the moments of sharing: giving and getting within or outside the borders of my country.
Couldn't live without travelling around the world and the joy I find in speaking other languages and meeting people from different countries.
Sometimes digging in memories, other times looking ahead in the future, but mostly living in the spontaneous present.
Best feeling when you find happiness, satisfaction and challanges in your job as well - that's journalism and youth work for me.
Like to listen to people talking about their passion.


Everybody wants happiness, nobody wants pain, but you can't have a rainbow without a little rain.


meeting and sharing with new people from all around the world (I won't stop until talking to people from 100 different countries, I'm getting better in this aim from time to time :), culture in every form (literature, movies, exhibitions, theatre), learning languages, wide range of sports (from skiing to swimming), interior design, attending music festivals and concerts, working in fields that I enjoy and that I'm motivated in

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: Fight Club, Inception, The Prestige, The Wave
Mainly dramas and arthouse films that allow me to find out my own meaning and let my fantasy flow.

Music: different for every occasion. It depends if I want to dance, relax, study, feel different emotions or remember certain situations in my life. Some favourites though: Placebo, Muse, Bloc Party, Coldplay, The National, Parov Stelar, Dub FX, Björk, Peter Bjorn, Art Brut, Beirut, Bonobo, Mumford and sons, Babylon Circus, The Tallest Man On Earth

Books: Hungarian literature, Master and Margarita, Karamazov Brothers, Darkness at Noon, Flowers for Algernon.

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Seeing the Northern Lights one day after my brithday in the fairytale like country of Iceland.
Watching the sunset from the top of a mountain close to Salzburg with some friends and then walking down in the horror film-like forest for 2 hours to reach the civilization.
Magic Sombrero Ride (crazy fun-fair game) in the Prater in Vienna with 20 other couch surfers.
Sailing in the middle of a storm with heavy wind in a small boat with my friend and trying to calm ourselves down with the most stupid songs ever.

Teach, Learn, Share

You can choose from a never-ending list of the things I can share or teach:
- languages
- Hungarian specialties (foods, drinks, must sees in Hungary and Budapest, some sentences or words in one of the most difficult languages in the world)
- basics of waterballet. or you can choose some other sport that I know if you don't want to wear noseclips :)
- funny card and other games
- how to do lots of things at the same time in your life without feeling exhausted at the same time
