About 

After earning my Dipl. Ing. Arch. degree at Budapest University of Technology and Economics, I worked for 2 years at architecture firms in Budapest, Hungary and became a licensed architect in 2000, before founding my own design firm. After a diligent 5 years of running my own design office, I came to the US as a Fulbright scholar and received a Master of Architecture degree at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn NY. After graduation I worked in New York and London and got involved in teaching of graduate design studios. I was awarded by the Hungarian-American Enterprise Scholarship Fund (HAESF) for completing my studies and research; and several times by the Hungarian Ministry of Cultural Heritage for studying the culture of architectural environment, and for organizing workshops of emergent design technics for architects and designers. I have developed a series of workshops for students called FAB-RIC by merging the latest computational architectural theory and technics with manual model making. I also organized and directed an event series on architecture and associated fields in Budapest with Közterület Társaság.

I have an international experience in several different countries, with diverse cultural and architectural background and with different construction and building types. As a lead designer I have completed major projects all over the world, recent years include New York, NY in the United States and London in the United Kingdom.

In addition, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree at Semmelweis University, Faculty of Physical Education and Sport Sciences and I was a professional basketball player and a basketball coach in Hungary.
