About Me

CURRENT MISSION

working my way back to the place where the kakapo roams

ABOUT ME

Funny, curious, friendly, openminded, easygoing, take a look what people think down there, too... I'll tell you all about birds, how owls are not wise, but ravens are. and you will not be able to go around not noticing them any more..Just kidding. But sometimes people do get smitten.
I've been working mostly as a translator, working for big companies, small companies, translation offices.. Teaching various people various languages, doing a bit of babysitting, I like to try my luck at new stuff, earn new skills.

Working back in Lithuania now... would gladly meet and chat and show around, sometimes might even be able to offer a place, but i live a bit outside of the city centre, so that might not be too enjoyable. :)

PHILOSOPHY

Relativism is not the answer.
