What's story behind the 'lampe'?!

Lampe is german for lamp.

And the story behind that is:
When I was young I was playing a lot of counter-strike.
And I had different names all the time.

One day we were playing a counter strike mode where one team was a sofa or a waste bin or whatever was an object and the other team needed to find that object and shot it.
It was fun because you were questioning yourself was this tennis ball always on that table or not :D

So one round all of my team decided to name themselves after an object. We hade names like "Sofa", "Mรผlltone" and many more.

So I named myself 'Lampe' and it sticks until today :D which is like almost 20 years ago.

Didn't know you're German! When & why did you decide to move to Lithuania?:)

I'm actually Polish :D
But my parents moved to Germany when I was 3 years old.

I moved to Lithuania like 18 months ago because Vilnius is a beautiful and modern city :)
Also the company I worked for at that time had a second office here in Vilnius.
I just liked it here so much that we moved here :)

Okay, that's cool! Did you graduate from a German university? And if the answer is yes, did you enjoy it?:)

I graduated at HAW Hamburg and yes I liked it.
The design department was one floor up so we would cross projects with them and usually this was the most fun :)
