i hold phd in cultural studies, ma in east european cultural studies, ma & ba in international relations and ba in history. i studied in warsaw and st. petersurg.

my primary hobby is photography. i have been shooting analogue & digital for more than 10 years. i started with M42 thread mount Zenit and Praktica cameras.

most recently i moved towards minolta md/md mount and contax/yashica systems. i am increasingly fascinated with controlled unpredictability of the former and decisive sharpness of the latter.

my academic interests cover identity studies, politics of memory (especially in kaliningrad oblast) & cross-border cooperation in the baltic sea region.

i am also a professional diplomat, currently serving in poland’s consulate general in kaliningrad, russia. previously i worked in brussels and warsaw.
