About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Get on stage in Budapest!

ABOUT ME

After finishing college, I worked on Wall Street for 8 months before feeling disgusted by it and quitting. After hitchhiking around central Europe I settled in Budapest. I'm currently learning Hungarian and organizing the English language comedy scene. Improv comedy is my greatest passion and I will probably try to bring you to a show or three.

I got into CS when I first lived in Budapest. I was 20 and obtaining Hungarian citizenship by virtue of my grandfather being born in Budapest. Six months later, I got my passport and now I'm a dual US-EU citizen.
