EN Home

Welcome to my website! Here you can find out all kinds of things about me.

I mean, still, meeting in real life is much nicer, of course :)

Who am I?

I value many things - you can find some important ones here. Maybe with some unnecessary details, but hey, that's who I am as well!


CLARINET - my main instrument
(-s, the whole family: Eb, Bb, A, Bass). I love playing different styles, like classical, jazz, klezmer, and pop.


EDUCATION - teaching others is one of the most instructive things I have done in my life. I love transferring my knowledge to others, and learning from it at the same time.

crazy sounds

CRAZY SOUNDS - I can make some very weird sounds. Dolphin? Coffee machine? Old school telephone? Don't even ask - it's already done. Challenge me!

playing together

PLAYING TOGETHER - I find it both very rewarding, and very important: non verbal communication and timing are amazing things to experience.


MUSIC - I mean, what can I say about it... It's one of the most important things, I think. I wouldn't know where I'd be without it.


THEATRE - drama? I'm up for it! I love telling stories, and showing others what a crazy and beautiful world it is.


ENERGY - Whatever I do, I do it with full energy: I throw myself in with all I have and work to make it happen.


HAPPINESS - I love being happy, and making others happy too. I almost always see the positive side of things.


ART - I still don't know what it is exactly: is art just for myself? Or for people around me? Maybe for the connection between them and me?
