Around here, he’s known as Woj, but our head honcho was born Wojciech in Poland – a popular Polish name that combines the words for war and joy. It’s an apt title for Kwasi Studios’ founder, who can be found spreading a laugh just as often as he can be found waging war against web problems on behalf of our clients.
A List of Woj’s Favourites:
|Sports Team||Brooklyn Nets (since the Seattle Supersonics are no longer in the NBA).|
|People||Ones who read our blog.|
|Quote||“Be curious, not judgmental.” – Walt Whitman|
|Book||Seize the Time by Bobby Seale.|
|Moment in History||US Civil Rights Movement in the late 50s.|
|Food||Aburi Sushi & Pierogi.|
Woj is an all-round web guru who is just as fluent in IT gobbledygook as everyday business parlance. Fifteen years of working on websites have made him a veritable expert in online marketing and web development.
While most of his experience has been in Adelaide, Woj made the leap to Sydney in 2008 to work in SEO. Naturally, it was only three years before Australia’s most liveable city drew him back. On his return, Woj looked for opportunities to do what he loved, but found that Adelaide had no specialist inbound marketing companies. Being the go-getter that he is, Woj took it upon himself to give South Australia and the world what we think you’ll find is the best inbound marketing service on the planet.
But Woj won’t let his extensive experience turn him into an anti-change stalwart. When it comes to keeping up to date, he’s an obsessive-compulsive. Every morning Woj can be found guzzling the latest developments in SEO and considering how the changes affect what we do. Washed down with his big-picture, evidenced-based approach, it’s a recipe that allows Kwasi to offer the best for your website.
When he’s not working to make clients’ websites as good as they can possibly be, Woj volunteers his expertise to assist World Medical Fund, a non-profit group that brings essential services to developing nations. He also sponsors the Megaroos, a children’s soccer team, and a family-owned restaurant in One Tree Hill, Art Through Da Vince’s Eyes.
More from the pen of Woj…
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.
