multiinstrumentalist, composer and music producer, his artistic style grew out of jazz, which remains a strong element in his music. He has later combined his free jazz roots with a fascination for ethnic, electronic, and contemporary music. 

He has been a member of bands such as Tiebreak, Graal, Young Power, Izrael, and Brygada Kryzys. He has also collaborated with Stanisław Sojka, Grzegorz Ciechowski, Tomasz Stańko, as well as bands such as Daab, Trebunie Tutki, and Twinkle Brothers. He has cocreated multimedia projects notably with Krzysztof Knittel, Marcin Krzyżanowski, Piotr Bikont, Marek Chołoniewski, and Paweł Dudziński. 

He also composes film and theatre music, collaborating with theatres such as Klinika Lalek itinerant puppet theatre, Warsaw’s Powszechny Theatre, and Zakopane’s Witkacy Theatre. In 1997 he won the Golden Mask award for his music for Eugene Ionesco’s The Chairs (Śląski Theatre in Katowice). He has also received many prizes as a soloist and member of jazz bands including at the Jazz on the Odra festival, Jazz Juniors as well as the individual Krzysztof Komeda Prize.
