-I was born in Siauliai, but used to live in the Capital of Lithuania for about 10 years.

After 2 weeks I moved back to Siauliai and started working with a great team of professionals.

4. What inspires you in this job?

7. What professional advices would you give for your clients?
-If you are using servers to host money making sites, do not trust every data center. Spend some time to test their services, read reviews on the internet, ask what others think about the host. You can even test their support, asking questions to check whether they are professionals or not. Your site is like your business card, like your office.
