There he twice made it to the finals of the competition Short Story.
There he published two collections of poems, some of which have already became popular, some of them will in the future.
There he worked as a dramaturge, co-author and sound engineer for an important amateur theatre in Trnava.
There he co-wrote two theatre plays, the second one won the main award in the competition Drama. Despite not learning how to sing nor play the guitar well, he co-founded a relatively well-known band there, in which he sings and plays the guitar.
There he translated poems by several Hungarian authors into Slovak, despite not knowing Hungarian.
