I graduated from the University of Warsaw with a Master's Degree in Engilsh Philology. I am interested in popular culture, online communities, science-fiction and role-playing games and just anything that makes me feel I understand the world a little better. I teach English to business clients and do translations (computer games and assorted other topics :)). Other than that I am working on a startup online newspaper about Poland in English combined with courses in journalism conducted in a simulated editorial environment. My curiosity and passion for global integration and change made me join the TED.com Open Translation Project in 2009 where I became a Polish Language Coordinator, and recently a Storyteller for TEDxYouth@Krakow. I am also organizing the workflow of a Translation and Transcription sub-team of TEDxWarsaw. In my free time I volunteer at sports events, do freestyle rollerskating, read about astronomy and play boardgames, MUDs & old style pen & paper RPGs and the guitar (beginner since 1998). My favourite internet places are Reddit, the Naked Scientist, NaNoWriMo, and Coursera. I currently live in Mokotow in Warsaw and at weekends I go out to read a book at a bench in one of the many parks or visit Traffic Club.
Lifelong learning - once you dig deep enough everything becomes more interesting. The more you know, the more you become interested, the easier you connect with others and that's what life is about :)
Science matters. Spontaniety and curiousity are keys to happiness. Be yourself to get useful feedback.
Creative writing, science fiction, role-playing, lifelong learning, literature, poetry, spontaneity, openness, comedians, popular science, astronomy, business, what YOU know about so I can learn :)
creative problem solving, organizing workflow, making pizza, freestyle rollerskating, HoMM3 tactics, GMing pen&paper RPGs, getting straight to the point, analytical thinking & being totally serious
