In his portfolio, he also has VR and 3D films, which are still being screened in Polish and international cinemas to this day.

Dominik graduated from Gdańsk University of Technology, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science in 2018.

Since June 2023, he has been working at xxx alongside talented veteran developers and artists from AAA studios such as Bungie, Naughty Dog, Blizzard, and Respawn on a new FPS Tactical Shooter. 

His bosses and colleagues, when asked about Dominik, use terms like "exceeds expectations," "irreplaceable specialist," and "a friendly guy you can always rely on" in the context of his work.

The previous game Dominik worked on as Technical & Creative Art Director - "The Beast Inside", was awarded the Pixel Awards in 2018, as well as the Webby Award for Best Visual Design in 2020. Additionally, the game "Medium," where he served as Technical Artist UE4, won the NAVGTR Award in 2022.
