I'm a child of the nature and I think I'm a spiritual dude. I love a good intellectual conversation when I'm not in a whirlwind of activity. My nick name is Arvy. Mountaineering and mountain hiking is my lifestyle. Bristlecone pines and wild horses are among my biggest inspirations. My best friends in the U.S. are Ger, a retired police commander of Tucson, AZ and his sweet wife Alice. My friends also title me "the honorary Nevadan" (the Sin City has nothing to do with that), but I'm native from and live in Lithuania. That's correct; I'm not about Louisiana :). So Lithuanian is my mother's tongue. I have a degree in fine art (MFA) and I'm dealing with Baltic amber jewelry, oil painting and sculpture. I keep membership at the American Chamber of Commerce in Lithuania since 1996.
