I'm currently working for Dampfzentrale Bern and B-Sides Festival where I co-curate the music program. Our main music event at Dampfzentrale is the annual festival Full Of Lava (fka Saint Ghetto) that is happening in November and presents artists that move on the outer edges of pop music. EXPOP and Aether are two other, a bit smaller festivals that we host. From 2016 until 2020 I have worked at Neubad Lucerne, where I was responsible for the club and music program and various other cultural events.

I grew up in the 90's in between Lucerne and Bratislava in Slovakia, the country where my whole family comes from and where I was born. My grandfather used to buy me tons fake-copied CDs from the local market in Bratislava of various pop artists from the 90's and 00's such as Christina Aguilera, Destiny's Child or Britney Spears. I think that is how I began to experience and love music, especially pop music.

I'm always looking for artists that are trying to break conventions and go beyond the Zeitgeist, for music and performances that transmit meaning, energy and wisdom. That are taking me into someone else's experience and out of my own. And also making me move.
