My birthplace is Vilnius, the capital of Lithuania. A very beautiful and lively city with a lot of culture.
I feel at home in Switzerland,
and even more in music.
I spend a lot of enriching and exciting time as a piano teacher at the Berne Conservatory.
On this journey of discovery with my students through different epochs, musical styles, composing, improvising, creating beats, grooving and swinging, I am a teacher and learner.
The rest of the time I am a searcher at the piano, at the computer, in the recording studio.
My music at the piano is often spontaneously improvised.
Improvisation is a second mother tongue for me.
Again and again I have the feeling to have found something new and special and again and again I start the search anew.
I have found the most valuable moments
so far within myself.
