I was born in the Czech Republic, 1982. My parents emigrated to the USA in 1985, where we stayed until 1996. My studies have been at the English College in Prague and the University of New York - Suny New Paltz where I achieved a bachelors degree in business science.
Since then, I traveled the world as an international freestyle motocross (FMX) rider. Over the 17 years, along with being active in competitions and exhibitions, I have gained nearly 2 decades of experience in managerial and leadership positions within the FMX and entertainment industry, leaving my fingerprints in over 300 events around the globe.
Currently, I'm attaining to achieve my MBA degree and am working closely with start-ups and growing organisations. Helping improve their organisational structure, work processes and strategies in order to become more successful.
"Passion makes perfect."
