I studied biology at the Wroclaw University of Environmental and Life Sciences. I am also a certified business coach. While still a student, I started working as an automotive editor for one of the largest websites in Poland for whom I still I freelance today.. In the past, I managed an employment agency, ran start-up incubator, was the PR and marketing director for an automotive company and was the editor-in-chief of a pharmaceutical magazine. I gained experience and knowledge that allowed me to start cooperation with a publishing house focusing on R&D projects and technology transfer in the infrastructure sector. In addition, I began to lecture at the university as an expert.
Currently, I work at Kvarko, and in my spare time, operate my own medical publishing house and invest in real estate, cars, ores and cryptocurrencies.
