“You are unlimited.” – Yogi tea tag.
Born in 1986 in Katowice, Poland.
For years I’ve been vagabonding around the most remote places in Europe—sleeping on the ground, meditating on mountaintops, and hiking up every obscure, back-of-beyond trail I could find. By the time I started writing epic, 17-page-long stories about my adventures in my old-school paper journal, I knew the world was my backyard. Without realising it, I was laying the groundwork for my future.
In 2011 I found DEFUZE magazine, a collaborative, quarterly art and fashion photography publication featuring young talent alongside established professionals. Having studied printing and preparation process in college, I felt like I was finally putting my skills and knowledge to the test. I have always enjoyed the creative process of playing with words and images, and I had always wanted to run a successful magazine.
My interest in fashion had somewhat faded away when I realised that it’s not manufactured clothes and pretty faces that I love and care about, but people, places, and real-life situations. That, eventually, led me to journalism, which I am currently studying at the College of Media and Publishing, reportage photography, and documentary filmmaking.
In 2014 I packed my backpack to the gills and virtually carried my home away with me. I flew to Iceland where for two weeks I walked for over 150 miles. I wild-camped and deliberately subjected myself to almost absolute solitude so that I was able to reconnect with the true purpose of my life. That purpose, I quickly realised, was travelling.
So while I am still exploring the world, searching for Crusoe and happiness, I am currently studying Magazine Journalism at the College of Media and Publishing.
I also studied Animal Behaviour and Welfare at The University of Edinburgh. Additionally, I got a Writing Specialization Certificate in Academic English from The University of California as well as a certificate in Digital Photography from Harvard University.
