Born in Lodz – Poland, educated in Darmstadt – Germany and now having moved to Sydney, many would say I am living the dream. I graduated with a master’s degree in civil engineering (majoring in traffic and transport) from The Technical University of Darmstadt. Through my work in Germany I have developed skills in traffic, road surface condition and dilapidation surveys, including planning, staffing, execution, data analysis and traffic prognosis. The projects were commissioned by both government organisations and private sector groups.
During my travels I managed an accommodation business in Far North Queensland, through which I experienced and embraced the importance of customer service and to think outside the box. I love to be thrown into the deep end because I love the challenge of finding the best possible solution.
Apart from engineering I enjoy travelling through less developed countries to experience untarnished people, cultures and creatures. When possible, I take every opportunity to scuba-dive; I am aiming to complete my first half-marathon; and most recently I have taken up the science of baking.
As a new addition to the ptc. team I have accepted the challenge of pursuing traffic engineering excellence (even if it’s on the “wrong” side of the road).
