What inspires you?

I am inspired by: nature — the energy it can give us; humans — how we built our civilisation and what we have today; and others — those who take non-conventional paths and dare to ask questions with the purpose of changing things for better.

What relationship has been most influential in your life?

Two immediate answers come to my mind. One is the relationship with myself: how I have been able to discover and connect to my purpose in life over the years.
The second one is the relationship with my grandfather. For many years I was not aware how much his personality shaped who I am today. He was a medical doctor, a family doctor. He also loved exploring and getting to know new things, which was not so easy during communism in Hungary, but he found the way to take his family for camping across Europe over the years. I discover his personality and influence shaping the work I do today.
