About Me

CURRENT MISSION

chill, read, learn, experience

ABOUT ME

I'm an energetic, positive, open-minded and tolerant person. Generally I’m very active and busy enjoying life (meeting people, going to concerts etc), I love sharing (good times, thoughts, food & wine etc) but I absolutely love time on my own as well: reading, cycling around singing or just chilling at home or in a park. Recently I rediscovered how much I love nature and I'm trying to spend as much time outdoors as possible. I often feel the need to get out of London and spend some time in the mountains.

I love all sorts of contemporary/alternative art/dance/theatre/literature, like slam poetry, street art etc - I love it when art is truly a part of everyday life, popping up in unexpected places and when instead of being some sort of an elitist experience, it is accessible to everyone.

I love walking around in new places randomly - I enjoy constantly exploring the unknown and discovering interesting stuff by accident.

Originally from Budapest (I love the place and would like to live there eventually), I consider myself very cosmopolitan – I used to live in Bulgaria for 4 years as a kid, spent 4 months in New York studying as a teenager and lived in Paris for 10 months in 2003-2004.

I’ve been in London for almost 4 years now and though I wasn’t planning to stay longer than 6 months, it seems that I’m stuck here for a while… I found my best job ever and though I managed to discover my favourite areas in London very early on, it took me a while to really begin to love this way too huge city. Also, I’ve been enjoying it a lot more since I got myself a bike :)

PHILOSOPHY

OSHO
Be brave and take responsibility over your own life - that's the only way to happiness! Enjoy what life has to offer - there's so much of it for everyone! :)

Would be impossible to list - I LOVE MUSIC!!! I love everything form oldschool funk to abstract hiphop, jazz to electronic, alternative to good mainstream pop/rock, world music to classical. For a great variety of good music, check out Radio Tilos (www.tilos.hu), the legendary Hungarian independent community radio station.

Amelie Poulain!!!

Kurt Vonnegut!!! - great guy, great thoughts! RIP... Douglas Adams, Joseph Heller, Alberto Moravia, Marquez, William Wharton, Paul Auster...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Gave English lessons in New York City at the age of 15.
Made a cake for 120 people :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you positive thinking :)

And cooking - have you ever wondered how truffels are made? mmmmmmmmm...yumyum!!!
I'd love to learn more about all sorts of exotic food - meaning anything I haven't eaten / made so far.

I can definitely show you good music you've never heard before - and I'm eager to hear your favourites!

Oh yes, and in case you really are a pervert (like me), I can teach you some tricks with Excel :)
