From my personal life: I love choir singing, so in my spare time I attend rehearsals and concerts with the Košice Singer Choir of Teachers, but I also love opera and alternative music. My sporting passion is swimming and endurance running, so much enduring that I have been running for more than 35 years. My priority is professionalism, expertise, and a sense of detail, which is why I am considered to be a nasty fault-finder.
