Who I am in 20 seconds

I am Vilius Paulauskas.

I live in Vilnius, Lithuania London, UK.

I believe that you should know something about everything.
And everything about something.

I know a bunch about programming & the Internet.

I enjoy designing.

I pay attention to details.

I agree with the ideas of Seth Godin. The job is to invent the status quo.

I want to change the world (at least to plant a forest).

I chase what I love. I love what I do.
