my journey
My Journey
  • I started out in political science, but quickly learned how easy it can be to get corrupted.
  • I ventured into anthropology to find out more about people and their motives.
  • I decided the best place to enact positive changes would be in education.
instructional design
Instructional Design
  • I thought, I could be a teacher and really make a difference, but I wanted to do more.
  • What better way to change the system, than to instruct the teachers how to teach?
  • Instructional Design allows me to improve upon teaching methods, thus enacting some positive changes!

simple pleasures somewhat pathetic i admit
Simple Pleasures, somewhat pathetic I admit…
  • I am addicted to coffee and coffee products.
  • I also love cheese to the point where people ask me if I was a mouse in a past life.
  • I also have an embarrassing addiction to soap operas, namely Days of Our Lives.
  • I am part Hungarian and Czech.
  • I studied abroad in Prague (located in the Czech Republic) and fell in love with the city.
  • The next couple of slides show the absolute beauty of this region.
  • I personally like the juxtaposition of contemporary society(fast paced, modern city life) and old world culture (structures, buildings, etc.)
stressed out
Stressed Out?
  • When I need to relax, I often close my eyes and imagine myself strolling in Prague or Budapest. One street you feel like you are in a fairy tale, then you turn the corner and feel like you are in Manhattan! It is crazy!
