About the Author

Filip Ziolkowski was born in Gdansk, Poland, and after two-and-a-half years of non-stop travel around the world, he decided to spend some time and take a deep breath in Cali, Colombia. It all started with an innocent weekend visit that four years later is still going on. In Cali, his life is filled with meaningful work, salsa dancing, meeting shamans, and spending time connecting with the wisdom of nature.
He currently works as a full-time professor at the University of Autonoma Occidente. He teaches advertising, marketing, design, and social media. He occasionally gives speeches about how he discovered who he really was by traveling around the world.
