About Me


I moved to Vienna to start working in my own startup with some friends of mine. I've had enough of university and I'm looking forward to finally be working on real projects full time :)


I'm a passionate climber, love beaches and the ocean (the pacific is my favourite one). I grew up speaking two languages, Hungarian and German, the Hungarian part is a bit rusty, but if I happen to speak to someone for some time, I keep remembering the words ;) Got into dancing salsa about a year ago, so if you have some secret salsa party locations, drop me a message! :)


Life is a risk, but I will take any opportunity to see more of it.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Made my first experiences in my Erasmus Semester in Switzerland, great!! I tried it again in Vienna and was not disappointed ;)
One of my best trips ever brought me to New York, where I went on a CS trip to Boston for two nights. Best time ever.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'm not a good teacher honestly, but maybe I could teach you some basic hungarian :D Also, if you want to get into climbing, I'm happy to teach you some basic steps! Speaking of basic steps, I can show you how to dance Salsa (cuban style).
Beside that I have a lot of experience in fighting with computers, so I can fix a lot of little problems with them ;)
