From a small country called Latvia, my family faced the challenges of living under communism and the limited freedom to leave. Determined to escape, my parents obtained the necessary papers and made the bold move to Toronto, Canada with nothing but the clothes on their backs! That's when I was born. Despite the language barrier and the difficulties of starting over, my family persevered by God’s grace and truly by many incredible Miracles! (Way too many to share on here)
Started from the bottom…
Having to start my full-time job as a General Contractor at just 12 years old to help support our family, was an absolutely crazy journey, to say the least. (Fun Fact: We also were a Family Band that travel all around Ontario, making music and playing in many different churches at the time) Throughout my journey, I learned the value of faith, hard work, responsibility, and full trust in God. My life was all about survival at that age and just keeping my eyes fixed on Jesus. Later in my career, I began to develop a passion for self-development, business, and marketing, I took advantage of every opportunity to learn and grow. As I was working away in the Construction field I would listen to so many Podcasts & Audiobooks every single day to learn as much as I possibly could with the desire to one day start my own business.
In 2019 (Just before the pandemic), I felt a call from God to leave my great site supervising job and pursue e-commerce and marketing full-time. With the support of an incredible mentor, I took the leap of faith and never looked back. By God's grace, I was able to help successfully scale a marketing agency and help hundreds of clients build successful eCommerce brands. All while doing street evangelism and serving in ministry.

I truly learned and grew so much in this season!
In 2023, with a heart and a call for full-time ministry and also a desire to start using my marketing skills to further advance God's kingdom, I am grateful for the crazy journey that has led me here, focusing on Ministry, Starting Kingdom-Marketers.com to help other ministries grow & also recently joining and working with the incredible E3 Canada Family!
I'm so excited to continue sharing my ever-changing story with you guys and see what God has in store for me next.
I’m reminded and motivated by what it says in Matthew 6:33: ‘But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.’ (This is where the motivation for SeekFirstBrand.com came from)
