Michael is a productivity guy. He is the founder and CEO of Nozbe, a project management and collaboration tool used by over half a million busy professionals and teams from all over the world. He served as Editor-in-Chief of one of the top productivity magazines on the internet, Productive! Magazine. Michael is also an author, blogger, and speaker. He co-hosts The Podcast.
He was born in Gdynia, northern Poland, and spent his childhood there. His mom started teaching him English when he was 6 and thus she fostered his interest in languages; his father, who was an "electronics technician," got him interested in computers. Now, apart from Polish and English he also speaks fluent Spanish and German.
He has two university degrees, one in Business Economics and one in Marketing. Right after his graduation in 2003 he set up his own company, apivision.com, to pursue his interest in Internet commerce. He founded two startups (Wyslij.info and HitRSS.com) that eventually failed before he finally started something he was truly passionate about and managed to succeed with: Nozbe.
In his free time he enjoys doing triathlons, running, swimming, playing basketball, skiing, writing, and reading (or listening to) books. He is a geek who likes technology gadgets (he's an Apple fanboy) and cars.
Michael works from home and everyone on his team works remotely. He believes a "job is not a place to go but a thing you do." He lives in a very beautiful place in Europe with his wife, Ewelina, and their three amazing daughters: Milena, Emilia, and Liliana.
