Maciej graduated with an MA in theology and philosophy from Adam Mickiewicz University in Poland and a MSc in European policy and management from Birkbeck College, University of London, UK.

In so-called free time, he leads a theater group and directs performances or spends hours staring at miniatures in medieval manuscripts.
