It always seems impossible until it’s done.
When love and skill work together, expect a masterpiece.
ART & DESIGN
I’ve been designing websites since I was 14. In 2005 and 2006 I attended computer design courses in Lithuania (total 306 hours. 153 each year) where I’ve learned how to use programs such as Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Flash, Adobe Dreamweaver, AutoCAD, Corel Draw, 3D Studio Max and Microsoft Office (Word, Excel, PowePoint). 2006 attended drawing school, 2012 completed Photoshop and InDesign courses. 2015 completed photography courses.
2016 started learning filming and video editing.
WEB DESIGN & SEO
First open source platform I used was PHP-Fusion and it was back in 2005. Started designing and coding themes for the platform. Since then loads have changed and I’m keeping up with today’s technology. Making sure websites I build are mobile/tablet friendly, search engines optimised (SEO), code behind the scenes is simple and understandable. Designs are light, modern and user friendly.
HOBBIES & INTERESTS
Since 7 I attended Taekwondo classes and after few year (when I was ~10), I became Lithuanian champion (still have a green belt). When I turned 12, I’ve decided to play basketball which became a huge part of my life. I still play when I get a chance and I love it. I love sports overall.
Family and friends: camping, hiking, bbq, playing sports or just chilling is the most valuable time for me.
I love good food (Chinese, seafood or chicken wings are my favourite. Trying to avoid sweets), music (pop, old rock, RHCP), movies (dislike sci-fi and prefer documentaries or movies based on real stories, love comedies)
Mother tongue: Lithuanian. Very good at English (understanding, writing, reading). Studied Russian and would probably understand and manage to say few phrases, but since I don’t use it very often, it gets forgotten.
