a Slovak writer, Catholic priest and bee-keeper in the Kingdom of Hungary. He was born in Castá into a craftsman-farmer's family. His father died soon after his birth, and mother moved to the neighbouring village of Dol'any, where he also visited elementary school. He later studied at a Piarist gymnasium in Svätý Jur , studied theology in Buda and Trnava. Due to his weak health he wasn't accepted into any religious order. In 1776 he was ordained and started working as a chaplain in Sered (1776), for a short time in Lukácovce, finally working as a priest in Nahác in the present-day Trnava District, from 1780 to 1807. In the meantime he also worked as a secretary in the Slovenské ucené tovarišstvo (Slovak Educated Brotherhood) (1792). Later, he retired to his home back in Dol'any, where he lived until his death and composed poetry.
