ABOUT ME

I am a third-year VU Business School student and a tech enthusiast. Over the 22 years of my life, I have developed a unique stack of skills. When I was 14, I started making music videos, they gained over 3.5 million views. That helped me gain a few clients and I graduated to making brand content, video ads, and wedding videos. I remember being 16-year-old and directing a music video with over 40 people on the set. These early experiences taught me how to solve problems on the spot, manage people and time, communicate with clients, and get things done even when I had no idea what I was doing. After high school, I had a gap year. During that year I realized my passion for technology and business. I enrolled in International Business at Vilnius University Business School and started learning web development on Coursera. Currently, I am searching for an internship in the tech business field.

ABOUT THE WEBSITE

Since I do not use social media platforms, this website acts as my portal to the internet. I believe that everyone should have their personal website because there are many benefits that come with it. Social platforms are the second layer of the internet, they act as middlemen. A personal website allows me to be in control. I do not pay with my personal data, there are no ads, no likes, no followers. It is googleable and I can do whatever I want (for example, make it dark mode only). Since I know how to code, it costs me less than 2 coffees per year. There is no reason not to have a personal website in 2021. Would you like to have a website? Contact me, I can build it.

This particular website is also my web development playground. During the 2020 Covid-19 lockdown I have started learning web development (HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React, Python and Django). I took over 20 courses on Coursera and Teachable, built multiple for-fun projects, started doing some client work, and decided that it was time for me to build my personal website / portfolio. 100% of this website is designed and coded by me using pure original HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. No templates, or frameworks were used. Over time, I will continue to update it by adding functionality, pages, cleaner code, and experimental features. You can track my progress on GitHub. I am open to all opportunities regarding software development.
