I was born in 1986, and thanks to my father and my maternal grandparents, who both were nature-lover people, I became acquainted with fishing at a really young age. My father and my grandfather often took me fishing to the “old river” or to the nearby lakes, ponds and backwaters. The knowledge I acquired from them, and the numerous experience I attained during the years, developed my skills and formed me to become a conscious sport fisherman. I grew up in Tokaj, and except for the years I spent at university, I have never lived permanently anywhere else. I have always spent much time on the rivers, and this is exactly the way it is today; the rivers Tisza, and Bodrog are my shelter, my source of relaxation and my entertainment.

Schools and qualifications


I graduated from high school in 2005. After finishing high school, I instantly entered higher education and was accepted to university, and between 2005 and 2010 I studied at the Institute of English American Studies at the University of Debrecen. I earned my degree in English language and literatureon the North American track in 2010, and at the same time I also attained Business English specialization. I have been working as an English teacher from 2010. Firstly I taught the language in Debrecen in two local high schools. Later I came back to my old high school in Tokaj, where I had graduated years ago, and since that time up to the present I have been working here as an English language teacher and dorm teacher.
