ABOUT ME

I am Dáša (pronounced as English Dasha or something like that ;)), I am a teacher but I also LOVE to LEARN. I tried to learn juggling when I was young and I failed miserably. YouTube didn’t exist back then and I didn’t know the right technique how to learn. Much later, when I was 38, I was motivated enough to try again. I found a good video tutorial, and this time it worked! Since then I believe that everything can be learned (up to some point) when we have the motivation and the right teacher – it can be a book, a video, an online course, or an inspirative teacher.

I come from Slovakia, where I worked for 7 years as a math and biology teacher at a school for gifted children. Being a TEACHER, finding a way to explain things in a clear manner was always my main priority. I love languages as they allow us to communicate. I love talking with inspirative people and learning from them.

For the last 14 years, I’ve been living in Geneva with my family. I am a mother of two tall youngsters. I love to make things myself – I am a passionate origamist, jewelry maker, and knitter. I am attracted to learning traditional techniques (like weaving baskets, making paper, baking sourdough bread, etc.) and searching for solutions to how to make our lives more sustainable.

I am a big enthusiast of design, I enjoy solving problems, and finding creative solutions (hands-on, like repairing things but also virtual). In the last years, I got a chance to work on several origami books which deepened my passion for making books. That is also a reason why I got interested in graphic design and why I decided to study more about it.
