As a native Lithuanian who has also lived in Denmark, Norway and Indonesia, I'm now an avid traveller exploring the world while working as a designer.
Photography for me is more of a hobby. But while I enjoy shooting for my own pleasure I am starting to seek for opportunities to connect with others for lifestyle photoshoots or expedition style documentaries somewhere remote.
And even though I got into photography only when I started capturing my nomadic lifestyle, photography is something that starts with my family. Both of my parents are professional photographers who have always encouraged me to have a camera in my hand.
For a living I create. In 2008, when I was about 16 years old I started my design career as a self-taught freelance logo designer and illustrator. I then gradually added front-end development, animation and various other skills to my repertoire. Nowadays having joined my forces with a bunch of bright and cool people at Hanno I create and curate visual stories for somewhat quirky startups and pretty serious companies that are looking to grow.
I usually struggle to define my profession with just one or two words. But I see myself as one of those unicorn designers (or at least the one who's getting there) who spends a lot of time staring at a screen and dealing with vector curves, writing front-end codes, setting animation keyframes and doing whatever it takes to convert my creative ideas into something that tells a story, looks beatiful and evokes emotions.
Besides design and photography, I appreciate some time off screen too. I love traveling and exploring the great outdoors—you can find me hiking somewhere in Norway, sailing the Mediterranean Sea, motorcycling in Bali or stargazing in Australia.
