This is My Story
Hi there! My name is Marcin Grygiel, 34 from Świebodzice, Poland. I was always good with computers and technology. At the age of 21, I started working at Wrocław University of Technology as a IT support technician. I decided to move to London when I was 23 after graduating from The Witelon State University of Applied Sciences in Legnica (in 2006) because it was without a doubt the best place to be in the UK for a career in IT.
Unfortunately, for many years I worked at what I felt like were dead-end jobs, and I needed to reevaluate what I wanted to do with my life. I decided to run my own company specialising in IT support & networks for the SME sector, cryptocurrency data mining, exchange and investments.
In 2009, I was bored during winter vacation in Poland, so I decide to install Windows operating system on my Nokia N95. I was quite surprised by the interest in this topic, therefore, in 2012, I founded First Ever, the place for all my weird projects. From mid-2013, I became really interested in cryptocurrency and started building my own servers for Scrypt-based cryptocurrencies. I currently own and manage multiple servers for Ethereum. In 2014, I founded shareVR, another way to get virtual reality using your smartphone and I was the first person who play PC games on smartphone-based VR goggles – ARMA 3, Alien Isolated, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition and Project CARS.
I designed and created the first VR goggles with built-in cooling system comprising two mini fans, this solved the problem with foggy, sweaty headset issues. After 3 years, another company created a similar device called Vive N Chill, but I believe that my built-in cooling system was better.
That same year, I have managed to run Windows 7 on my Android smartphone – I was first again.
This is my journey, I hope you enjoy it!
