About Me


See the northern lights.


I am a Hungarian postdoc researcher in virology, currently living in Montreal. I would say I have a pretty wide field of interest. I play bass guitar in the indie-alternative band, It's There Fork and used to play double bass in my home country. I am also a big fan of herpetology and terraristics, but my current housing allows me to have only one lizard. I'm also into painting and crafting. Can't wait to meet interesting people of various culture!


Never say no! Always try to make the best out of whatever happens to you! (or at least I try my best)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Have already met a few interesting people - some of them transformed into still lasting friendships and even a marriage ;)

I would say each minute have worth it so far.


Science, music, arts, traveling, animals, herpetology, terraristics, gigs, shows, concerts, reading, foreign languages, phylogeny, evolution, nature, knowing new people worldwide, visting interesting places... You know what? Get to know me instead :)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

All the gigs with my band... There were no two similar ones.
Opened for Shonen Knife and Demented are Go
All the international scientific congresses I've attended... Always keeping some surprise.
Staying off-grid at the banks of a river full of crocodiles in tropical Australia.
When my bearded dragons laid their first clutch :)
And uhmm... There were just sooo many!
