The theatre plays he worked on have won a number of prizes, e.g. DOSKA 2008 and 2014, the most prestigious Slovak theatrical award,and also the Czech Alfréd Radok Prize 2012. In 2014 he was awarded the Tatra banka Young Artist prize for his work on Láskavé bohyne (The Kind Goddesses).

He lives in Bratislava and writes in the remote Slovak countryside, in a region called Gemer.
