Graphic Designer, illustrator, artist

Ever since I was a child I have been interested in drawing.  After graduating from the Hungarian High School of Art, I attended the Hungarian Academy of Fine Arts, where I attained a university degree in graphic design.

I worked as an art director at several international advertising agencies (Ammurati Puris Lintas, Publicis, BBDO, Lowe GGK). More recently I create personalized graphic works for my clients at my own studio.
