I am founder and chief editor of the group of websites called Ittlakunk.hu. I also assisted at the birth of a Sunday magazine by the Swiss Ringier group. Starting in 1988, I worked for the HVG weekly for more than two decades as a foreign policy journalist and editor of the Trend and Interview columns. I have been chairman of the Board of Trustees at the Göbölyös Soma Foundation, which supports investigative journalism, since 2001, a member of the Board of Trustees of the anti-corruption organization Transparency International Hungary since 2006, and its chairman since 2012. In my free time I go hiking with my dog and listen to jazz and classical music.
I have become an ambassador for the Community Foundation Support Programme largely because I was so charmingly invited to do so! Joking aside, I am really happy to see local communities act to improve their lives, show more solidarity, and develop their abilities to make positive decisions – and, of course, being able to contribute to this process is an honour and a delight.
