Hello. My name is Tom. I am 39 years old. I smile a lot, talk a lot, a good listener, and love cooking.
I am world champion in the ceiling and mobile hoist operations.
Most of my life I was spending most of my time at work - trying to build something big and fantastic. The sudden illness of my Grandfather made me reconsider values in my life. I have resigned from regular work and spent last year of his life trying to make sure he was comfortable and calm. During this time I realized that I need a change, a big change in my life. After his passing away, I decided not to go back to the rat race and found a job as a domiciliary carer in South England. The smiles of the people I was working with, that special glance in their eyes when I entered their homes… this was definitely the best reward I could get. When asked by my friends why I want to continue my life as a carer - I simply say that it's the kind of “job” where you do things you would normally do for people in need, and by accident, I am rewarded in return. It’s kind of an ideal world . isn’t it ?
Within my own family, I cared full time for my grandfather and grandma for around a year. They both required progressively higher levels of care as a result of terminal illnesses. In 2015 I have joined domiciliary care company in West Sussex. I loved the job, feelings I received back for my work, but I realized that I would be happier having more time to really care about my clients/patients. Thus why I decided to go in to live in where you can blend in into their life, making it more pleasant and easy, having at the same time a chance to learn and exchange experiences with new people. From April 2016 until October I was taking care of the quadriplegic patient in his own home. I am specializing in spinal cord injuries and quadriplegia. I speak fluent English. I have full English driving license.
I am a photographer. I mostly shoot portraits. I particularly like black and white photography which pushes people to be more focused on the subject and the stories I am telling. My main interest these days is travel, particularly to places involving history that I am interested in, such as ancient, medieval, cities, towns and castles.
My background is mostly in business and consulting. I completed studies at Warsaw University on International Relations. In the past I have been working mostly with big media companies - since I left Poland I have lived mostly in a remote village “Mariou” on Crete Island surrounded by beautiful mountains, sea, and good hearted people. I love meeting new people, visiting places where “something is happening”. I love reading books - I am into all kinds of psychological literature up to classic stories as well as historic books. I do enjoy watching some latest Tv series - like Game of Thrones, Vikings & Lost.
