ABOUT ME

I'm a web developer living in Cracow, Poland. I've been working professionally for over 10 years.

In 2007 I bootstrapped my own startup - a browser-based game Nightwood Dragons. For more than 8 years Nightwood remained online, profitable and was providing entertainment for tens thousands of daily active users.

Currently, I'm working as a Front-End developer at a London-based startup Profinda, where we are building a cloud-based work and talent optimisation platform.

In 2011 I graduated from one of the top Polish universities, AGH University of Science and Technology in Cracow, and earned a Master's Degree in Applied Computer Science.

I love to travel, read, play (and develop) video games.

I speak Polish, English and a little German.
