My Roots and Roaming Spirit

Nestled in the heart of central Slovakia lies Janova Lehota, the charming village that sculpted my connection to both nature’s wonders and the value of hard work. However, life had grand plans for me beyond the hills and forests. At the tender age of 11, I embarked on a transformative journey to Ireland – not an abrupt packing of bags, but the start of an adventure that unfolded over years.

From Emerald Isles to Continental Quests

For a span of 12 years, Ireland became my second home, nurturing my growth as I pursued my education to university’s end. A pivotal juncture arrived when, fueled by wanderlust, my best friend and I embarked on an epic cycling odyssey across Europe. This expedition stirred my soul and propelled me to a new chapter: the United Kingdom.

Crafting Digital Dreams

My creative ferver found a canvas in the UK, where I dedicated 5 years to the realm of digital and motion creativity. From pixels to motion, I wove stories that resonated with audiences, shaping visions into captivating realities.

Proudest Moments

Seized the chance of a lifetime and didn’t let go
Transforming from the reserved student whom teachers cautiously considered holding back a grade, to earning the prestigious “Student of the Year” title within a mere two years – all while navigating a foreign language and adapting to life in an unfamiliar land. Every ounce of gratitude is owed to my stepmother.

Didn’t crack under pressure
Completing my university degree and achieving the highest grades I’ve ever attained, all while balancing video freelance projects, internships and the responsibilities of running a restaurant. This learning journey was made possible by none other than my close friend and partner in crime, Jason – a brother from another mother.

Took a leap of faith
I left behind an incredible job and set my sights on South America. Over six months, I embarked on an exhilarating cycling odyssey across Colombia, Ecuador, and Peru. Through deserts, jungles, and high altitudes, I faced the extremes of cold and heat, battled relentless winds, and even embraced moments of solitude. I pushed the boundaries of my comfort, (somewhat) willingly embracing hunger, thirst, sleepless nights, and exhaustion, all in the pursuit of an unforgettable adventure that was better than I could have ever imagined or hoped for.
