I am Paul, a sport psychology consultant and clinical massage therapist with a bio BSc, a sport psych MSc, and 20+ years training (and later teaching) judo. Along the way I’ve done so much more though, and this is a space to connect it all. I’ve been into decentralization since before I knew what that was, and have been in debt for nearly as long. This naturally led me to my current project: more grad school, this time in understanding the future of wealth distribution that is Bitcoin.

I’ve also lived in almost half of Canada’s provinces plus a few countries in Europe, picking up conversational French and basic German on top of my native Polish. This all led to significant dabbling in genealogy, history, polyglotism, interculturalism, understanding racism/sexism/global structures of injustice, and tinkering with free and open source technologies that open the world up just a little bit more. I write about some of this for the Institute of Network Cultures from time to time. This website is all that and probably more, soon. Until then, you can catch me on the decentralized web or sometimes still at a local judo club, re-learning breakfalls (the video is from when I was less afraid of the ground).

“Mobilis in mobili”

… why “spmx”? Sport Psychology and Mx (massage therapy in shorthand)… plus a nod to a classic webcomic
