His formative years were spent in a sport-accredited elementary school, where daily swim practices were seamlessly integrated into the curriculum. At 10, Coach Kiss joined Coach Jozsef Nagy's elite program, facing rigorous training that only fueled his passion for swimming through high school.

Coach Kiss earned his stripes as a multiple-time Age Group Champion in the 200 IM and 200 freestyle. Yet, his most cherished memory remains his 6th place finish in the 200 IM at the Hungarian Open National Swimming Competition at the age of 14.

After graduating high school, Coach Kiss moved to the United States with his family. He married his wife, Anita, and together they're raising two sons who share their father's love for swimming.

From 2014 to 2021, Coach Kiss took on diverse coaching responsibilities at the Wyckoff YMCA, from beginners in the intro program to guiding Junior National qualifiers. He also served as Assistant Coach for two years at Ramapo High School. Currently, Coach Kiss brings his expertise to the Scarlet Aquatics NJ Wave swim team as the Assistant Coach, further contributing to the development of young swimmers.
