I was born in Budapest. I have four degrees in the humanities and one in regional economy. For 4 years I had taught in a primary school as a Hungarian-history teacher. After that for 7 years I had educated political science political and social philosophy at the Pázmány Péter Catholic University (Faculty of Humanities, Institute of Philosophy).

Between 1999 and 2009 I coordinated the cross-border programmes of Esztergom as an external consultant and later as the director of the local regional development firm. During this work I have personally managed the establishment and the operational work of the Ister-Granum Euroregion, later the establishment and the initial development work of the European Union’s second EGTC.

Since 1992 I have been dealing with regional questions and political theory of space.

Since July 2009 as a secretary general, I have been coordinating the work of CESCI’s working organ.
