born as the only child to Lore and Karol
I went with my family to the beach. While my father was drinking his beer under the umbrella and my mother was getting a sun tan I was getting really bored. A lady on a towel next to us told me I can move to the sea and be like Ariel, but if I go I can't turn back. I gave it some very serious thought and in the end of the day I decided to stay here.
now based in Berlin / Hamburg
