I’m a freelance writer and English/Portuguese into Polish translator specialised in Art and Humanities. As a graduate in Cultural Studies, I feel passionate about all forms of human creativity – especially film and music. In film, I have a special admiration for Stanley Kubrick, Robert Altman, Akira Kurosawa, Yasujiro Ozu, Jim Jarmusch, Christopher Nolan and Paul Thomas Anderson. Music-wise, I’m a child of grunge and the American alternative scene of the ’80s and ’90s.
Travelling is my natural mode of existence. I’m a bit of a restless spirit, incessantly curious about the world and the variety of cultures it contains. So far, I’ve lived in four countries, including a nearly 5-year-long stint in the land of samba, capoeira and bossanova, which turned out quite fruitful, resulting in a series of articles and translation works dedicated to Brazilian art and popular culture, published in Polish art periodicals. Currently, I’m based in London, exploring the continually fascinating UK music scene and taking full advantage of the British Film Institute’s abundant offer of the classic and current celluloid treasures on show.
