I graduated from Simon Fraser University with a B. A. Sc. in Computing Science with a specialization in artificial intelligence.
In September of 2013, I joined Sauce Labs, my current employer, where I started as a member of the Mobile R&D team and became Director of Engineering for our Vancouver, Canada office. We are the team responsible for designing and building Sauce's Real Device Cloud - an on-demand service for access to Android and iOS devices, mainly for testing native and web applications on actual mobile devices. I've gained valuable experience managing fleets of both bare-metal and virtual machines of various operating systems (Linux, Windows and Mac). I've learned how to build and run a distributed, high-availability software system.

I'm an Apache committer on the Apache Cordova and Ripple projects.
I'm fluent in Polish, English and French, can get by in Italian and I'm learning Spanish and Farsi.
