About 

I was born and raised in Silesia, Poland, a region of heavy industry - coal mines and steel works, which had a major impact on my architecture and urban planning interest. Living within a degraded environment made me particularly sensitive to ecological problems and the role that architecture plays to help.
Revitalization and rehabilitation in urban matter became one of my major interests during university years, which resulted in earning Master’s Degree at Silesian University of Technology (Gliwice, Poland). My diploma project focused on revitalization of a city center - Chorzow, Poland,(2007).
My professional adventure with architecture started with an internship with Frederic Schwartz Architects (FSA), a Manhattan based full service architectural firm(2007-2008). As a freelancer, I worked with other firms on small scale projects  (Interior Masters Group and Concrete Shop).
Since May 2013 I've been working as a junior architect and project manager in D'Apostrophe Design in Tribeca, NYC. I've worked on several high end residential projects ( Washington Street Apartment renovation conducted as a D&B project,  East 72 Street  Apartment ). I am currently working  as a job captain on full gut townhouse renovations: a 8000 sq ft townhouse project on Charles Street, Greenwich Village NY, and a 4000sq feet townhouse  in  Prospect Heights, Brooklyn.
