Someone said, curiosity feeds experience, but more importantly, experience feeds curiosity. I can attest to that: leave me long enough with any topic and I'm doomed to find a fascinating angle to it.
So I ended up doing research in fields as (apparently) disconnected as musical instrument design and real-time collaborative software; exploring computer graphics at a time when generating a single picture took a morning and then some; and writing code in about a dozen programming languages. Nowadays, while still busy with technology, I'm finding those fascinating angles in dance pedagogy and foreign language acquisition.
I'm always happy to connect with people and hear about interesting projects. Feel free to drop me a line. I'm currently based in Budapest and travel often within Europe.
