I started learning to play the piano under József Csontos at the age of 11 in Békéscsaba in 1996. Two years later, I was admitted to the preparatory class of the Budapest Music Academy, where I studied under György Nádor and Balázs Réti. After receiving my master's degree I went to study in the United States. First, I studied under Tamás Ungar at the Texas Christian University, then under Anton Nell at the University of Texas at Austin where I received my PhD in 2015. Currently, I teach piano at two universities in the United States (New Jersey), and often give concerts. So far, I have visited 19 countries around the world and have given solo concerts or was the soloist of orchestral performances. Every year I have been invited to the Netherlands and France for music festivals and solo performances.

My most important achievements include winning the Liszt Ferenc International Piano Competition in Weimar, Budapest and Los Angeles, as well as the first prize at the Paderewski International Piano Competition in Los Angeles.

In the early 2000s I performed quite often in Budapest, including the Great Hall of the Music Academy, the Vigadó, the Nádor Hall of the Institute for the Blind, and even Óbudai Társaskör, where I had the opportunity to rehearse with the Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra. My plans include a gradual return to music life in Budapest.
