About Me


Balding young man of average height. Under thirty, no peculiarities. Often seen in the act of dancing at various events with electronic music and live performances. Holds a polish passport and eats a lot of vegetables. Seems to be dissatisfied with the money-oriented planet-consuming world order, but still witnesses testify that most of the time they saw him smiling.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Once when I was hitchhiking back home (Warsaw than) the guy who gave me a ride for the last 300 km turned out to be my neighbor. We didn't know each other before (the building had 10 floors and we both were quite new there).
