Born in Poland, I moved to Scotland when I was aged four. I live and have grown up in Kirkcaldy. I moved to Edinburgh to study building services engineering at Heriot Watt university and begin my career in this subject. I moved back to Kirkcaldy to raise a family. My first role after university was with BDP Advanced technologies. This was a design and build contractor who specialised in the Pharmaceutical and Semi-Conductor sectors based in Livingston. I then went on to work in TPS Design in Edinburgh which mainly worked within the prison and court sectors. Following that, I worked in Blackwood Partnership in Edinburgh where I met John Robertson and mainly worked on retail and shopping centre design. Following that, I went to work at Wallace Whittle (TUV SUD) where I worked on more retail and residential sectors. Following a number of years of travelling down to London on a major residential project, we decided to start our own company and I left to start Horizon M&E and have never looked back.
