“Adam is widely considered a godfather of Polish Magic judging scene. He was one of the first certified judges in Poland, and is one of the last few that remained active throughout the years. When I first met him, I was impressed by his calm and relaxed presence of the head judge, combined with natural showmanship and sense of humour. When I got to know him better, he became my mentor and role model – as to many judges in the country.
His head is always full of ideas on how to improve, or create something new: from board games (his another hobby), through regional projects, like Polish judges family tree (see here: http://tinyurl.com/kbff366 ), to global scale ones, when he was a L4 and head of Web Content sphere. He’s also a great storyteller – it feels like almost anything can trigger a story about some GP or PT that took place years ago, that is fun and sometimes even educative. I’ve been fortunate to hear many of those stories, tackle some of his ideas for development of our community, and I keep wondering where do they come from in such big numbers. And I’m still asking for more, hoping that Adam, now father to 3 sons, will remain active, so we could all benefit from his involvement.”
