My stage name is “PAYA”, and I was born in Budapest. I have been working as a creative for more than 20 years, 10 of which I have spent at Saxon. For me, this job means not merely work, but also my hobby. The best ideas tend to find me in the most unexpected moments: riding the bus or the tram or walking in nature. When it comes to creative work, it is true in more than one way that a genuinely great creative output cannot be forced. And one more thing: you have to love what you are doing!
Nowadays I help the Saxon team as a consultant.
