I've been drawing and dreaming, but I guess big reason for my interest in design came from my brother 🙂
I wanted to be like him, and also make cool loudspeakers!
In my teenage years, we had a lot of fun with my friend Pacek – creating websites, imaginary websites & other projects.

In 2010, I've started our backyard café (#cafedvorekjundrov), hosting many amazing dinners that brought various people and friends together, enjoyed learning photography, cooking and playing with social media.

In 2012 I've moved to Scotland, to study Digital Interaction Design at the amazing DJCAD art college.
I loved cooking more and more. I've made my own "Tasty" snacks brand!
