HOW MANY LANGUAGES DO YOU SPEAK?
I speak English, German and Hungarian fluently and I can get by in French. I also studied Latin for seven years and Italian for one year.
I ALWAYS WANTED TO BE…?
…happy in life (and I think I’m pretty close to it 🙂
WHEN YOU ARE IN BYRON BAY, DON’T MISS OUT…
….on talking to the locals. Absorb the Byron vibe and the positivity of the community.
It is inspiring to see how many conscious people life in Byron. It really makes the world seem a better place. After all, change starts within each of us.
BYRON BAY’S BEST KEPT SECRET IS…
…not so secret anymore. But secret or not, an early morning walk to the lighthouse to watch the sunrise is the most amazing thing to do.
I’LL BET YOU DIDN’T KNOW…
…that in Byron all teachers actually love teaching and genuinely like their students. 🙂
WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE THING TO DO?
Being with my family. Running. Reading. Travelling.
HAVE YOU EVER LIVED IN ANOTHER COUNTRY?
Yes! In Germany (Berlin) and the USA (in Los Angeles)
WHAT IS YOUR DREAM HOLIDAY DESTINATION?
Because we are so lucky to have the most amazing beaches and countryside here in Byron I love exploring cities when I’m on holiday.
WHY DID YOU BECOME A TEACHER?
I do love teaching. After studying marketing and working for an international record label in Berlin I knew that talking to people from all kinds of different countries is what I love to do. It is wonderful to see students improve their English and to realise how much they appreciate our help and input. It is genuinely rewarding.
Being able to teach and inspire people from all over the world and living in Byron is pretty close to perfect for me.
