I'm a freelance mechanical engineer from Latvia (Eastern Europe), I speak fluent technical English as I studied engineering in the United Kingdom.
Basically I am a hardware hacker, I like to make things differently just because I can and doing projects that are different than others is my kind of thing.
My software of choice is Autodesk Inventor, but I have used and can use several other software platforms. I have worked in the industry as a shade structure designer, this experiance gave me some skills in visual design using Adobe CS6. I have also worked as a vending machine constructor and a stair designer.
I spend my free time building weird bikes, just like the cargo-ghetto-blaster-bike in my picture.

-Restored a 1954 Moskvich 401 with my godfather at age 14
-Got third place in Latvia State Physics Olympiad at age of 16
