My hobbies include photography, tennis, skiing, running, and developing drones and model planes. I play the piano, guitar and electric bass and sing in a choir whenever time permits it. I also enjoy studying non-verbal communication and have taken courses in sign language.
I have Polish roots, grew up in Vienna and live in Braunschweig, Germany. I have a younger sister.
