About the Groom

 

Konrad grew up in a very small town outside of Lublin in Poland. He doesn't have any siblings, but he grew up with his cousin Raf in the same house, so they always considered themselves as brothers. While growing up in a small town, both Konrad and Raf had all the freedom to play around the town in the meadows (playing "War" with their friends was a favorite). As a kid, Konrad loved to take apart all sorts of electronics and then try to combine the different circuit boards together to see the outcome. Of course Raf played a big role in these experiments (both of them would always compete with better ideas), which sometimes would lead to small explosions and minor fires. If there was no more electronics to take apart, Konrad loved to build Lego mega-structures.

When Konrad was 11, he moved to Ottawa. Only then he was able to get his hands on a computer (luckily not to take apart at first). All throughout school his favorite class was "Computers", so it's no surprise he decided to pursue a Computer Science degree. Now he has lived most of his life in Ottawa, although for him it still feels like majority of his life was spent in Poland.

 

Konrad's Interests and Hobbies

Those who know Konrad can say that he has a new interest or a hobby every week, and that's because he loves to explore different things all the time. However once he gets passionate about something, he follows through with it all the way, that's why a list of all the hobbies and interests may be a bit long, so only a few will be listed.

In the past 5 years, one of Konrad's major passions is Snowboarding, so much so that the end of winter makes him sad (while others happily welcome the spring). He even convinced Marina to make it one of her favorite activities (he had to convince her twice, since first time around she broke her wrist). So now during the winter season, together they try to go every weekend to ride in Tremblant.

Recently Konrad discovered Kiteboarding in Ottawa. He immediately became passionate about it, because the board riding season can now extended all year round. Currently he's still in the beginning stages of the sport, but nonetheless he wants to commit himself to go when there is enough wind to power the sail (and if he can find help to launch his kite).

Konrad also loves technology, so one of his interests is to explore new computer technologies. Sometimes you will hear him say that he's programming something for fun, which to some people may be a bit shocking. But he definitely considers himself lucky to be doing something he's passionate about, as his career.
