I spent my childhood surrounded by the tools and craft products that my father was making in his workshop. The possibility of creating beautiful and practical things with the use of tools was an inspiration for me to develop in this direction.
My interests went beyond the workshop work, which resulted in obtaining a master's degree in biology at the University of Lodz. Although academic reality seems to be far from the saddlery art, many scientific articles in this field are directly related to biological sciences.
Growing up in the countryside, I dealt with horses from an early age, but only as a teenager I started learning to ride on a horseback. At the same time, it was the moment when I started to create riding equipment for my own needs. Currently, each of my product is being taken to my own empirical tests.
Around what I have been doing there always were and there are many people who taught, advised and inspired me. Ultimately, my specialty is the creation of saddles individually fitted to the horse and rider, which offer I try to expand gradually. 
As of today, I can not imagine myself in a different role than the creator of such an amazing art.
