I am automotive writer, technology enthusiast and all-round opinionated, independent thinker, not afraid to swim against the tide of group-thinking masses.

I provide honest, independent view on wide range of subjects in technology and auto industry.

I am educated and practicing in information technology but my interests are much broader - from automotive engineering to finance, Internet freedom and privacy, macroeconomics, geopolitics, and finance.

I received my degree in IT Engineering from Riga Technical University. In 2007 I founded fastestlaps.com - Internet's lap time and performance test database for road-legal cars and motorcycles.

Some of my writings on digital currencies are published at cryptowildwest.com.
