WRITER / PRODUCER / PUBLISHER
I have been working as a journalist for the last 15 years in positions as a staff writer for Polityka weekly, an editor for Elle magazine, and as the host of a televised talk show. My debut novel, Dobranocka, was published in 2009. The following year, it was optioned for a feature film and I adapted it into a screenplay. I graduated with my MA degree from the Faculty of Journalism and Political Science at the University of Warsaw. Currently, I work as a press correspondent from the U.S., covering the entertainment industry for HBO Central Europe, as well as conducting interviews with American scientists (including, among others: Michael Gazzaniga and Jared Diamond) for Focus magazine. During the four-year-long process of writing and producing Hollywood PL, I also established Hollywood PL Publishing House to provide the project with publishing independence.
DIRECTOR OF PHOTOGRAPHY / PRODUCER
For the last 30 years, I have been shooting feature films, TV series, documentaries, music videos, and commercials in the U.S. and throughout the world. My credits include collaborations with directors Robert Altman, Dan Petrie Sr, Michael Tolkin, Jonathan Demme, and others. As a member of the American Society of Cinematographers, and Polish Society of Cinematographers, my work has twice been nominated for an ASC award. I’ve always indulged my strong passion for photography, exhibiting work both in the U.S. and Europe. I truly enjoy telling stories with unique and compelling images. This book has provided me with an opportunity to do so
