I am passionate about design and have a hands-on approach to developing a project. My design evolves and is realised through interaction and experimentation. After graduating from Vilnius Academy of Art in Lithuania with a BA (Hons) in Design, I developed an interest in designing products for people with disabilities. My Single Hand Cook project has won several worldwide exhibitions in Milan, Moscow and Shanghai.
Currently, I am studying an MA in Design Products at London’s Royal College of Art, under Ian Ferguson and Martin Postler (postlerferguson.com) where I continue working on projects in assistive technology field.
If you would like to know any more about the projects featured on my website, please feel free to contact me.

// Calling The Future //
This project explores our relationship with Technology. What sort of dreams and fears emerge from it? Looking back, what have we lost in the wake of our latest ‘advancement’? Looking forward, what do we envision our future to be? Each designer of Platform 17 chose their own path to explore the impact of electronic devices on human culture.

On 16th of July, I am starting InnovationRCA Summer Launchpad Programme.
Entrepreneur's Launchpad provides master-classes and one-to-one coaching sessions with business start-up experts over a two-month period, and takes in the highly charged InnovationRCA Incubator full of entrepreneurs, investors, and business experts.
By the end of Entrepreneur's Launchpad candidates will have developed a full understanding of the market and environment for their proposition and the commercial challenges they will face. They will emerge with a stronger understanding of the product development challenges ahead and a set of valuable contacts to help progress their proposition.
Entrepreneur's Launchpad is generously funded by The Atkin Foundation and was set up to help graduating students of the Royal College of Art develop the skills and know-how they need to turn their great ideas into commercial successes.
Come and see the Royal College of Art's annual graduate exhibition from the 20th of June to the 1st July. This year, the Design Products department will be showcasing their collection of designers work at the Battersea Testbed 1 site alongside Interaction Design.
