So who am I? I am:
Experienced traveller and expat – I come from a small town Piešťany in Slovakia and so far I lived and worked in Germany, Italy, France, Norway and United Arab Emirates. I love to travel and get to know new locations, culture and people (See the map of places I visited so far below).
Writer and photographer – During my time on the road I take a lot of pictures and seek new experiences. You can read and see about it on this blog and in my guests posts elsewhere.
Energy and data analyst – This has been the main focus of my professional career so far. My profile at LinkedIn can tell you more about my previous roles in the International Energy Agency, Statoil and International Renewable Energy Agency. Are you facing an issue in these areas? See above what I can do for you.
Lifelong learner – I am always eager to grasp new information or try out new experiences that would enrich my life. So far I learnt 10 languages (besides Slovak I am fluent in English, German, French and Italian, and I have limited knowledge of Russian, Norwegian, Swedish, Arabic, Chinese and Latin). I believe it is easiest to learn a language in a country where it is spoken, but you can start learning anytime, anywhere. I like to spend time reading books, playing tennis or golf. My latest experiences include learning how to draw, play a piano, fly a plane, dive and snorkel, archery, driving a powerboat and indoor skydiving.
