I'm Laszlo—a Doctor and Product Manager who is super passionate about building things that last.
I graduated summa cum laude from Semmelweis University's Medical School in 2016, then went into the tech industry, and worked at CodeBerry for six years, eventually rising to the Head of Education position, a mix between educational strategy and product management.
I'm a Generalist, who enjoys being at the intersection of fields, loves learning, and is strongest when making that oh-so-hard zero-to-one step happen in any project.
I've been leading teams and building things with others since 2010—from small (yet impactful) podcasts to national STEM competitions to multi-language, multi-national self-help hits. Always in collaboration with amazing human beings! 💛
When I'm not working—or working on a side gig like the ones just above—I play copious amounts of Dungeons & Dragons, enjoy good books and comics, paint minis, and hang out with my wonderful friends and awesome wife.
If all this piqued your curiosity, check out my LinkedIn profile or hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Currently, I am looking for opportunities in the MedTech space as a Product Manager and Doctor, so if you have something in mind, please reach out. 😊
- 1990: I enter the world in a small, Hungarian town called Miskolc.
- 1997: I go to my first basketball camp because everyone in my family has played basketball in
their youth. I'm seven years old and can't really throw the ball high enough to reach the basket. While in the
camp, the older kids bait us at lunch, and as a result, I have to repeat the same line a hundred times in a
notebook: "I will act normal during lunchtime." Years later, Dolores Umbridge's character in the Harry
Potter books sparks a special kind of hatred in me.
- 2005: I get accepted into the prestigious Földes Ferenc
Gimnázium (a secondary school in Miskolc) on the Biology track. My favorite subject will soon be Hungarian
Literature, and I wind up in the school's theater group on my second week.
- 2008: We put together a production of Mizantróp — a Hungarian play inspired by
Moliére's original The Misanthrope. We reach the finals of the national student theater competition with
it, and I briefly toy with the idea of becoming a director.
- 2009: I apply to the School of Medicine at Semmelweis University. They accept me.
- 2010: I join the Instruktor Öntevékeny Csoport (Instructor
Volunteer Group) at the university and complete their training to become a kind of peer mentor and community
organizer for the other students. One of the best decisions of my life.
- 2011: I attend a two-month time-management training at the Invisible University. Another great decision in hindsight.
- 2012: We plan and organize this year's Semmelweis Carnival with Bálint Trimmel. Excellent experience, even better friendship.
- 2013: I join the Invisible University as a volunteer and start teaching time-management
workshops. In the summer, I fulfill one of my dreams by becoming the "Letter Chief" of forty freshmen in
the Semmelweis Freshman Camp. Our first date with Andrea.
- 2014: I get accepted into the Invisible University's L# (L Sharp) program. One year, twelve
workshops, and a group of extraordinary humans. I will be forever grateful for the experience to Ádám Freisinger and László Békéssy.
- 2015: The year of volunteer projects. I join the YearCompass team, help design a mobile Ebola Treatment Unit for a
competition and start building a leadership training for the Invisible University.
- 2016: I graduate summa cum laude from med school and decide to hold off entering the
healthcare industry as a doctor. I give myself two years to get to know the world of startups. I apply for the Bridge Budapest
fellowship, get accepted, and start working at CodeBerry as an
intern. As a side gig, I develop a Study Techniques workshop based on cutting-edge research and my experience in
med school. I teach it on several occasions by the invitation of Semmelweis University's Alumni Directorate and HÖOK.
- 2017: I'm learning how to build a company at CodeBerry. The founders take my request seriously
and let me see and try almost everything at the budding startup. In a matter of months, I can try my hands at
marketing, HR, content creation, and customer support. In the middle of the year, I get the reins of the customer
support team and sign my first-ever full-time employment contract.
- 2018: After one and a half years, I leave the customer support team and concentrate all my
energies on the content efforts of CodeBerry. I become the Curriculum Development Team Lead. We celebrate our fifth
anniversary with Andrea.
- 2019: The original two-year timeframe I gave myself for experimenting is up. After an intense
period of soul-searching, I decide to stay on with CodeBerry and delay my return to the medical world. What can I
say? I still have stuff to learn and grew very fond of my co-workers.
- 2020: A hard year. COVID-19 hits the world and turns up the difficulty setting on all of our
lives. I pour my anxiety and uncertainty into creative projects. I launch a podcast with Ádám, rediscover my love
for D&D, code this site, and start writing essays again. In November, I propose to Andrea, and she says yes.
- 2021: Another hard year. The pandemic continues to weigh on us despite the vaccines. However, there are some really bright spots too. I complete a big project with EdisonKids and Samsung Hungary, start running two D&D campaigns, make new friends, rediscover my love for social gaming through Fortnite, and most importantly, Andrea asks me to be his fiancé. I say yes.
- 2022: After six wonderful years, I say goodbye to CodeBerry in November and set my eyes on new challenges. This is also the year when Andrea and I have our beautiful fey wedding in the woods, surrounded by friends and family.
- 2023: This is now.
