My name is Jason and not European through birth, but immigration and ancestry as my family is Welsh. I am currently living in Poland and working as the Deputy Director of the European Academy of Diplomacy - Poland’s leading Diplomatic Academy. I spent 5 years in the US Marine Corps after high school, have degrees in Marketing, Organizational Psychology and now an MBA. I am a passionate football fan, supporter of Liverpool FC and recent consumer of 22 Euro 2012 matches (do the math, that is a lot of time). I am passionate about cooking, coffee and literature, currently in the middle of Count of Monte Cristo and planning a Thai meal for my friends. I am based Monday through Friday in the capital - Warsaw - and spend my weekends in Lodz, Poland’s second city. I am looking forward in sharing my view of Poland over the course of the week and giving everyone a glimpse into this exciting and upcoming European country.
