About Me


Planning a big escape.


Polish guy living in Singapore. Grew up in various places around Poland. Spent some time in the US, China, Germany and Hong Kong working and studying.

I enjoy doing team sports, jogging, working out, meeting up with my friends, discussing random stuff, eating out, partying, etc... To quote my favourite lecturer, "something like that".
Oh, I also like history, politics and anthropology books.

Music, Movies, and Books

Movies: whatever's in the cinema

Music: Heavy metal and country are not my genres. Although, I can listen to it.

Books: History, politics and anthropology books recently. Typically, I read scientific papers. I'm trying to catch up with more engaging literature whenever possible.
