About Me

My current mission is to survive the Irish weather. So far so good.
English is not my mother tongue, I cannot be too perfect, so forgive me possibly weird syntax errors.

Born in Poland, partly raised in the Netherlands, I consider myself a lucky privileged bastard being born and raised by three amazing parents that have let me to explore the world by myself.

I moved here in autumn 2015 from Belgium for professional reasons; I've become your average economic immigrant (I don't like the word expat), since Dublin is in desperate need of language speakers the decision has been made reasonably quick. After 5 years of living in Belgium it was about time to change my environment, but Brussels will always be my sweet home.

I have a 8-5 job, so things are steady. After work I like to cycle, swing dancing or drinking good beer (preferably Belgian) in excellent company.
