How do you take your coffee?

I'm like a cop, straight black is the way to go.

Bike, walk, train, or drive?

A combination of all four depending on the weather and what I am looking to accomplish that day.

Favorite Chicago hangout?

I grew up around clubs because of photography from an early age, so Sound-Bar takes the cake.

What’s your ideal road trip?

A multiple week trip across the country with a mandatory stop at the Grand Canyon to hike down to the river and back.

What drives you?

The desire to make create art and leave a positive lasting impact on as many people's lives as possible.

Why Chicago?

I moved here when I was 3 from Lithuanian and after a lot of adventures and traveling, I always find my way back here. This is one of the greatest cities in the country and the world.

Can’t live without…

Some sort of camera.

Do you have a four-legged roommate?

By association, I am now the owner of an adorable little tabby after moving in with my girlfriend. She is pretty much like a little dog with how she acts and behaves.

Morning routine? ( in 3’s) Wake up, Brush teeth, eat breakfast

Wake up early, skip breakfast, get to work

Favorite tchotchke?

20-sided die

What would your Tinder profile say?

I actually met my girlfriend of 3+ years on Tinder. I remember I had some stupid joke in the description.

Define your style?

If it's black and fits well, I'll probably wear it.

Hashtag yourself.

If I am not at home, you can find me here.

Random fact?

I own way more books and graphic novels then I have space for, which I think is a good problem to have.
