Welcome to my website!
Well, you picked a quiet time for this visit. I recently became a retiree,
but at the same time, decided to start all over. So, what you currently
find here is more of a work in progress.
Rooted in Poland, I grew up in an agricultural environment, as the youngest child of survivors of Nazi atrocities. From a very early age on,
I experienced how Stalinism actually feels, consequently developing
a strong aversion against all forms of ideology and collectivism.
I explored the world, did an apprenticeship in hotel management, but
felt the desire to help overcoming the divide between the East and
the West, and to work for Peace. Having accumulated ≡ 466 ECTS
credits whilst studying European and philosophical stuff, I evolved
into an anti-academic who proudly threw away Wittgenstein's ladder.
I have fairly little respect for academic degrees and titles, my own ones included. Knowledge and competence surely do not depend on them.
I started writing primarily for one major international news agency, Berlin-based right on the front line of the Cold War, reporting from Europe before, during, and after the fall of the Iron Curtain. Occasionally serving as an Army reserve interpreter, as well as on the diplomatic floor.
It was what I saw and heard first-hand from political figures that made me abandon my aspiring career in the early 1990s. I started working in the aviation industry, gaining experience in airline check-in, in aircraft handling on the ramp, in meteorology, to some degree in the cockpit, until I made it into the tower as an air traffic controller and eventually training instructor. When I lost my medical certificate, I didn't retire but launched a low-profile modeling career, and this was how this website emerged.
Starting over now means independent work in historical research and investigative journalism. I discovered that there still are many unanswered questions throughout the past 90 years, which academics apparently avoid. Ranging from World War II via the War on Terror until our current, as I call it, War on Dissent, and which deserve unpolitical and unbiased answers. The same as Rome wasn't built in a day, my new journalistic and research challenge requires a lot of time. I will gladly keep you informed, and updated, if you are interested in the journey of this crazy Canuck. But please be patient with me. Stay tuned. Hope to see you again. Thank you for your visit.
