I walk the earth like Cain, but don't follow like Isaac, I wasn't born in a manger or in the backseat of a greyhound bus, though I've been on highway 41, not much there to speak of. Poland, like an ingrate lover, spat me out west, and that is where I stroll... for the time being. I read 10 books 10 pages at a time and it takes me 10 months to finish one, but the bits and pieces make for an intricate mosaic. It's getting bigger all the time, I've got to admit. With the coming of August Alma Mater recalls me to study the fine science of linguistics and Germanic Culture at the University of Illinois in Chicago. I live in Rogers Park and usually travel with my girlfriend Alex - my best friend and companion. Together, we love discovering new places, meeting people and exploring the world.
