About us

I come from Ostrowiec Świętokrzyski, my current base of operations is Łódź, but in my heart I’m a traveler. I’ve lived in Istanbul for two years, spent a year in Barcelona, called the capital of Poland my home for many, many years. I studied journalism and for the first few years of my adulthood I worked as a journalist and editor. I love how various media are growing online, producing serious content, but at the same time leaving enough space for joyous and unlimited creativity. I’ve created Globstory for fun and watched it evolve into the best job in the world and a full-time way of living. I listen to a lot of music, I sing and write songs, I suffer from creative ADHD. Geography is my long-time passion, same as film production and film editing, both of which I enjoy immensely. I’m a total nerd, video games for life! There’s two types of books I read: documentaries/reportages and Terry Pratchett’s Discworld novels, my favorite book is an atlas. I drink too much coffee and love memes.

I’m from the Bałuty district in Łódź, although I’ve spent most of my adult life in Warsaw, where I graduated from the Applied Linguistics department of University of Warsaw. Recently moved back to Łódź, but along the way I’ve lived in the USA, Ireland, the UK and the Netherlands. I enjoy translating and writing about our travels. I read a lot of documentaries and reportages from Poland and from around the world. Love delving head-first into new situations and places.

Been training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu since before it was popular. It’s a big part of my life and I don’t think that’s about to change. Ever since I can remember I’ve enjoyed discovering and listening to music, with a slight emphasis on metal. My favorite albums end up in my CD collection. I constantly tweak and upgrade my old school sound system (although I am not yet investing in super-expensive speaker cables. YET!), and when I’m not listening to music at home, I get my fix at concerts. Through a meticulous process of ordering it practically part by part, I’ve managed to assemble my dream bicycle that I ride whenever the weather permits. Hobbies are the most important spice of my life.

The manager :) All business
Born and raised in the district of Żoliborz in Warsaw. My Mom is behind my love of traveling - she started sending me to various camps when I was little - when I grew up the passion of exploring the unknown was already a part of me. Both Americas hold a very special place in my heart.

I’ve been dealing with PR, marketing and events ever since my university years. My dream has always been to combine my work and my passion for travel, and thanks to Globstory that dream became reality. Our adventure together has shaped my professional career and made me realize that it’s extremely important to dream big. And allow your work to be a source of personal growth and a lot of fun.

I am in love with the Rolling Stones and their music, in an active lifestyle, good food and crying from laughter.
