About me

I am a Zilina University (Slovakia) graduate in telecommunication and post-graduate at Bratislava Technical Institute in computer science. I have worked as a technician at TV senders (7 years), research and development (20 years) and informatics (7 years).

In addition to my job I studied languages (EN, FR) and after I retired I started working as a freelance translator. I am also good at IT skills.

To mention my other interests, it is skiing, cycling and photography.
