BIO: 

When I was 15, I have started to make movies, because in the first place so many filmmakers & films inspired me to be a more aware human, to love more, to express myself, to think for myself and to feel deeper. Therefore, I wanted to give back what I once got. I aim to create beauty on the screen. Using cinematography, light and the tools given, it is my passion to stream inspiration, passion, truth, feelings and emotions to the world. 

I am deeply privileged to do what I do, I am passionate about my work, whenever it's diving deeply into the pre-production process and storyboards of a fictional piece, or getting to know the characters and real life stories of real people within a documentary. I am open for new collaborations on fictional features/dramas, commercial work and documentaries. 

In the meantime, I work on my directional debut documentaries and short fiction, mainly about our environment, food production or sexuality. 


Technical Skills: 

I've worked my way up the ladder, from being a runner, clapper and light technician on sets, to learning how to perform DIT job or how to convert files and work as an assistant editor or doing simple animations in After Effects. 

I am a proficient user of Adobe Premiere, Adobe Photoshop, Lightroom, Final Cut.  I am able to use Adobe After Effects, Da Vinci Resolve. 


Other skills: 

- 3 years in a music school - piano

- 3 years in the Gdansk Primary school's Theatre (01/03)

- 3 years training tennis, Sopot, Poland (05/07)

- written and won several screenwriting contest while attending primary school 

- my favourite (extended level) subjects in high school were: Visual Arts, Biology, Psychology, TOK - Theory of Knowledge

- snowboarding & skiing since 15 years
