This page will provide information about who I am, what I do, where I can be found & other bits of useful randomness. It will chop & change over time as I get more time to write it
So where do I start? How about the beginning…
I was born Wojciech Kwasniewski, in Wroclaw, Poland in 1981. This was an interesting year (so I’m told by my parents) in Poland – a rather historical one. Wroclaw is a beautiful jazz-centric city where the second longest river, the Oder, winds its way through the city giving it reason to have over 100 bridges! A great place to start your journey in this world.
Soon, we left Poland as refugees and lived at a castle in Kapfenberg, Austria. Not a bad little spot really:
A few months later, specifically on the 13th of December, General Jaruzelski (who I just realised as the time of writing is also called Wojciech *shakes fist*) introduced martial law where by Poland was placed in “a state of war“. This meant that there were tanks stationed at the borders making it very hard for anyone to leave or return.
We stuck it out in Austria for a couple of years & my parents were faced with a choice: which country do we move to to start our new lives? Denmark? the US? New Zealand? No way too far.. how about Australia! So in 1983 we boarded a plane and migrated to Adelaide, Australia – this has been my base station ever since.
