I grew up in Poland until age of 12 when my parents moved us to Chicago in pursuit of freedom from communism, happiness and better life. In 2003 I moved to Surprise, Arizona with my wife, mother, sister and nephew. I have one beautiful & very bright daughter, one full of life dog and one crazy ferret.

I love all sports, motorcycle (Harley-Davidson is my choice), bicycle riding, horse riding, camping, traveling, coin, stamp, baseball card collecting, spending time with my family & friends outside, and yes I’m big Star Wars and Star Trek fan (Trekkie). I graduated from Brother Rice High School in Chicago, Richard J. Daley College in Chicago and University of Illinois in Chicago with bachelor degree – Liberal Arts and Sciences in Geographic Computer Information (GIS) 2003. I worked at Dominick’s Finer Foods/Safeway Inc. from 1993 until 2004 in Chicago and Glendale as head file maintenance clerk/pricing supervisor. From 2004 until 2007 I worked as head purchasing agent at Schuck & Sons Construction in Glendale. From 2007 until 2018 I worked as head purchasing agent/head inventory control specialist in Phoenix. From 2018 until 2020 I worked at Southwest Products as buyer. In June 2020 I was lucky to be welcomed into the Arizona Correctional Industries family as purchasing manager.

I’ve enjoyed working with inmate Andrews in Perryville. She is quick learner and good listener, finishes tasks quickly and she goes above and beyond to help purchasing, finance departments and all Arizona Correctional Industries shops in timely manner.

The best part of my job is working with professional team members and helping inmates resolve their everyday work issues and making them feel as important part of ACI team which creates better work environment for everyone.

On my last vacation, I went Chicago, Illinois to visit my family and friends. We had great time on the family farm doing different fun thing with kids.
