Slupsk, Poland, I was already drawn to the arts as a child. Watching my older
brother and sister play instruments, I fell in love with music, which led me
into a musical education (violin, viola, piano) at a young age. Starting my first band at the age of 14 set the first mark of my ambition to
become a professional musician. At the age of 15, I started playing trumpet and
joined my churchís brass band. My other instruments of choice were guitar and
bass. After starting several bands in my teenage years, at the age of 22 I
founded Grupa Mojego Brata (My Brotherís Band) - the first full time Christian
band in the entire communist block of Eastern Europe. Working as keyboardist,

God opened the door for me to join an international team of musicians and
dancers on mission trips to Ukraine. During one of those trips in 1992 I met my
wife, Dawn, and moved to the United States. We settled in Morristown, TN, and I
accepted a music director position at our local church. My wife, a school
teacher, dance instructor, choreographer and dancer, founded a Christian artís
studio while I ran the administrative part of it.
In 2000 I accepted a Worship Pastor position in a church in Longview,
WA. In December of 2005 we moved to Las Vegas, Nevada where we are currently living with our three children. Since my move to the
United States, I have had an opportunity to conduct worship seminars and teach in
Eastern Europe, South Africa
and the US and lead praise and worship for various events as well as produce and direct
musicals and dramas.
conception of Worship Steps, in the fall of 2003, I am actively involved in
filming, editing, graphic design, and all creative and
administrative aspects of the ministry.
