Born and raised in Warsaw, Poland. My father was a journalist and the chief director of a printing company. My mother was a proofreader at one of Poland’s most widely distributed newspapers. I migrated to America in the early 90s, and after completing high school I enlisted in the U.S. Army as an “Information Systems Analyst.” I served during the 9/11 attacks, completed a tour in Korea, participated in two “Operation Iraqi Freedom” deployments, and worked as an AIT (Advanced Individual Training) instructor.
It was during those years that I began creating various works under the project name “HexiBase,” which is stylized shorthand for “basis of sixes” derived from the prefix “hexa.” It was a cryptic reference to hexadecimal notation used by trackers, which were the precursors to the modern day audio samplers. (I was also a part time DJ and an amateur turntablist.) HexiBase.com has been registered for nearly two decades, operating in one form or another, having once served as a platform for my music, a blog, and a car audio community.
After 13 years of military service, I launched PWK Designs; an acoustic engineering company that established my reputation in the audio industry, ultimately leading to my partnership with Audio Dynamics; a high end car audio speaker manufacturer. Today I live in Missouri with my wife Sophie, and apart from my role at Audio Dynamics, I’m also a YouTuber, a web developer, a graphic designer, a hobbyist music producer, and a maker.
Life is good!
