About

I’m a developer and designer with a strong entrepreneurial spirit who build products users love. I lead a front-end team by the day and do side hustle by the night.

In the past, I’ve worked with companies like Betterware, British Gymnastics, npower, Purplebricks, agencies and studios like FishEye and The Studio 4. I’ve been freelancing, working on open-source and side projects since I’ve started my career.

Today, I am helping to build the cyber risk prioritisation platform at Cyber Owl as a Lead Front-End Developer.




What

I lead a front-end team by the day and do side hustle by the night.

I’m always keen to expand my engineering and entrepreneurship skills.

Where

Recently, I've relocated from the UK where I lived for 10 years, to work remotely and travel around the Europe with my wife and son while working remotely.

I spent the big part of my life in Riga, Latvia, one of my favourite places in the world.

Weird

When I’m not working, I love to read, run and spend time with my family.

I’m a little obsessed with coffee and pizza.
