After the elementary schools completed here, he continued his studies at Baia Mare and Aiud. After completing his studies he obtained a rector's post at Fagaras, but he was attracted to the printing industry. In 1680 at the age of 30 he went to Amsterdam to learn from the most famous craftsmen the art and printing technique.

Between 1684-1686 he managed to print the corrected copy of the Hungarian Bible, the Aurita Bible. He was serious, pouring the letters, and he was also the young man. The type of letters, font Janson, used today, comes from his letter collection. It is also possible to buy the Totfalusi font.

People could not afford to buy books and more and more enemies. Breath in body and soul dies in 1702, in Cluj.
