About

Senior Software Engineer who enjoys optimizing development workflows and minimizing boilerplate. I never stop learning and enjoy sharing my experience and insight with others.

I'm most proficient (and willing to work) with TypeScript (JavaScript), Swift, Go, and Rust. I'm an expert in Python, but don't want to use it anymore.

On the tooling side, specialize in Full-Stack Development, UX/UI Design, Machine Learning, and Game Development.

Education

2019 — 2020
St. Andrews, UK

After dabbling in simple neural network design I decided to join this course to learn more about AI in a more structured way. This experience taught me a lot about AI and made me able to research and create my own AI with the most suitable approach.

2016 — 2019
Liverpool, UK

This was a very dense learning experience. I learned the full spectrum of things about computers, from low-level things like designing my own silicon chip and making my own audio amplifier to high-level things like data structures, game theory, neural networks, etc.

2012 — 2016
Vilnius

4-year art school study where I learned most of I know about sculpture, composition, painting, sketching, photography, design and art history.

Improved overall DevRel via transition to better tooling. This includes, but is not limited to: switching MaterialUI to ChakraUI, Redux to a hybrid approach with Zustand, React Context and Hooks, and manual querying through Redux to React Query, among others.

Also, worked with multiple client companies through this consultancy firm:

  • trinnylondon.com - worked on their internal design system.
  • session.id - converted the whole project to ChakraUI from MaterialUI, which was crippling developer productivity and satisfaction.

Side Projects

2022

Inspired by a meme, I created this random excuse generator which generated an excuse for not attending something via 3 part structure. Try it out to get the reason for not attending that party you don't want to go to!

2021

React hook that simplifies management of GDPR consent for JavaScript/TypeScript developers. This is something that I needed myself, and from the attention it's getting I see that I'm not alone. It's still in development, but with v1 release, it will cover all possible developer needs, including support for Vue, Svelte, and others.

2020

This swift package allows adding a nice-looking tooltip to your SwiftUI app with one line of code. Can't come up with a simpler solution!

2020

A compiler that transforms SVG code into SwiftUI Shape structure. It allows converting SVG icons to Swift code to display in a SwiftUI app.

2020

This app lets users create polyrhythms with ease while also functioning as a regular metronome. It features an integrated tuner for the user to have the only two things they need to practice.
