About Matt

Early days

It all started in the early 90s. Back then I was taking my very first digital steps using Amiga 500. I clearly recall that particular day when instead of exploring floppy discs with games, I decided to open a Text Editor.

The seminal moment came when I sent a file to a printer - in a second I realised that a computer is doing not more and not less, but exactly what I ordered it to do. Since that moment I knew exactly what I want to do in the future.

The Career

I graduated in 2009 at School of Computer Science & Management "Copernicus" in Wrocław. My thesis was about Content Management Systems. Back then I was already a freelance developer - internet was the field where I wanted to code the things for. As a freshly minted engineer I started my professional career in a local interactive agency.

In the meantime I pushed forward and after two more years I obtained my masters at Opole University of Technology. In 2010 I moved to Warsaw and continued to explore the field of custom web applications build on premise. This naturally evolved to Software as a Service approach of crafting software with multi-tenancy coming along.

The Journey to Down Under

My satisfying and consistent career received a nice boost when an opportunity about moving to Australia popped up in 2013. I got a chance to exchange my IT knowledge with a multitude of creative people from various companies in Brisbane. Being piped through several IT companies, I managed to work as a Lead Software Architect and Team Mentor, responsible for coaching teams of other developers.

My approach in life is to always keep opportunities open, hence during my stay in this amazing country I have applied for the citizenship and become Aussie. Having a dual citizenship allows me to always look at Australia as my second home where I can go without any hassle. Speaking of my homeland - at the end of 2019 I decided to come back to Poland.

Present times

Between December 2019 and March 2020 I was travelling - I visited New Zealand, Singapore, quite big chunk of South-East Asia, Taiwan and Japan. Most of these destinations have been depicted under the Photography section of this website. Currently I'm based in Warsaw, Poland where I carry on crafting great software.
