Translator, reporter, editor, social media manager - you name it. Most prominently though, I've been the editor-in-chief of a language version from 2008 to 2021.

I witnessed John Terry slip under the pouring Moscow rain in the 2008 UEFA Champions League final. I interviewed Patrick Vieira on a freezing night outside Rubin Kazan stadium. I worked long hours in Warsaw and Paris at EUROs in 2012 and 2016.

But as I hail from Riga, one of my favourite football memories is Latvia holding star-studded Germany to a 0-0 draw at EURO 2004. I still remember those two German journalists at the media stand in Porto, and how their faces changed over that game. I learned many new German words that day.

Apart from football, I also follow international ice hockey and basketball, considered the Latvian national sports.
