I’m the type of guy who likes to be outgoing with actions instead of words. I go above and beyond in any endeavor I take on with purpose and drive. I am extremely responsible, loyal, self motivated and I constantly challenge myself to learn and do what others won't try. I look for opportunities to rally and inspire people to take things to the next level, I build hope, I challenge others, one can say I translate words into action. I never fear rolling up my sleeves to get something done that I believe in - I lead by example and put pride in everything I do. I live the motto of "When there is a will, there is a way!"
I am very grateful for my career in Online Marketing & Product Management but it doesn't meet my high standards for growth and contribution to help others. I need that balance! I learned to meet my needs through volunteering back to the community in areas I am passionate about. I have a lot of energy, drive and wanted to put it to something useful. I belong to 11 organizations ranging from the Red Cross, a couple of Lithuanian cultural community organizations, Lithuanian scout leadership, a volunteer search and rescue part of the LAPD, multiple community disaster preparedness groups with the fire department, and a couple of other groups I started like a company leadership group, a toastmasters club, a ski club and a sailing club for my friends. I enjoy life to the fullest and try to maximize every waking minute. I guess you can say I don't really wait or wish for things to happen - I make things happen.
As for hobbies, never a dull moment - I always loved the water being an Aquarius. Anything from scuba diving, water skiing, boating, sailing to the new adventures in surfing. I enjoy going to extremes to learn new hobbies like Krav Maga (self-defense training) or going to extreme in endurance to run 3 half marathons this year. Lastly, even willing to conquer mountains by hiking, rock climbing, or sailing over them in a hot air balloon. Some of my friends joke around saying I can challenge the dos equis guy for the title of the most interesting man in the world but I think I need a couple of more hobbies. :)
I am sure I missed a lot of things to write about but that will just lead to better conversations when we meet. Just a disclaimer - I am known to be a goofball at times and could occasionally laugh at my own jokes - even before I tell it! Hopefully that's entertaining to someone out there! Now it's just a matter of you getting back to me after reading all this. I am always looking forward to it, even if you just say Hi - I definitively don't bite. I will make sure to get back to you and make it a priority! :)
