Since 2004, I’m professionally designing websites. Times, where I was still living in Sixteen Division district¹, the west coast of Lithuania. Around that time 16div.com was born.

 

Websites became my passion when Flash was still a thing². As I call it: the era of web creativity. I've always dreamt of winning The FWA of the Day.

 

Unfortunately, never did, but got a few other awards³ along the way.

 

After school, I moved to London where I had dynamite opportunity working with famous brands around the globe.

From that point there was a really fast transition from agency to working with my very first startups. I fell in love building digital products. Especially, mobile apps.
