A good place to look for a storytime and more info about stuff
As a junior Web Developer I was given a precious opportunity to explore various areas of web development. Although I enjoy all aspects of it, I am most fond of moving up the stack and becoming a full time Digital Designer. I believe this is a role where my skills would be able to evolve, granting me an unmeasurable feeling of accomplishment.
But this is just a title. In a long term I am aspiring to become more than Digital Designer. I want to inspire and share my knowledge with others, make digital world a better place for everyone.
And learn some cool stuff while I’m at it.

The Looking Glass Design
Junior Web Developer
I am involved in various projects, from AngularJS applications, WordPress sites, corporate and product sites, email campaigns and more. Being around multiple teams, I am attempting to bridge the gap between our designers, front and back end developers. While enjoying all aspects of web development, I am readily providing assistance to my colleagues in all of the above areas.
Once upon a time…
…there was a small countryside village, hidden among beautiful hills and bountiful forests of Poland. That’s where I come from. I was a quiet child with busy mind.
I have always appreciated wonders of nature and enjoyed daydreaming. On a hot summer day I would climb an apple tree in my orchard and gaze upon the most beautiful canvas stretching beyond the horizon. I presume this deeply rooted love for nature is the reason for my fondness of art and design.
Living in the countryside however, comes with a lot of hard work and responsibility – two important values that were embedded in me since I was young.
As time proved, as much as I loved it, peaceful and simple life was not for me. More than anything I wished to discover mysteries of the world and I set out on a mission to find something that would satisfy my hungry mind. Among other areas, I have delved into the secrets of nano-engineering and physics of materials, which then led me to discovery of computer science. It served me well, as a tool to resolve most complicated mathematical issues. Seeking answers has become my second nature. The deeper I dived into mysteries of science, the more I appreciated the beauty of nature and meticulousness of data. It has become my greatest aspiration to create designs that would inherit the best of both worlds: art and science.
As the years passed, I have found myself in the shoes of a Web Developer, where I can finally unleash my artistic and scientific skills!
In my free time I indulge myself in a good scientific publication or play with new dev/design tools. Although I am more of a listener, I volunteer as an alumni speaker for Solent University (booking my first talk in October this year, yay!). It’s always great fun to share!
