I was supposedly born and definitely raised on the airfield. I had quite a career as a skydiver and paragliding pilot & instructor. While I still take part in the competitions, this is enhanced with official postings within national and international aviation sport bodies. I used to be a translator recognized by Polish aviation authorities at times when such recognition was obligatory.
All that did not prevent me from obtaining a degree in philosophy. Apart from my own works I had also a number of translations published ranging from studies on the Greeks to hermeneutics, both by English and German speaking authors.
