Raivis is a person that needs to organize, optimize and improve something all the time. He has been contributing to open source and has been participating in different community organizations for many years. He has been in the startup world and has seen successes and failures. From apartment building committee meeting where only two people show up to a solar panel webinar "just for friends" that more than 10 000 people wanted to attend. As a team lead in an IT company and the head of his neighborhood citizens council, he thinks of why some things work and some don't. As a father and a person with many more interests than one can find time for, he also thinks of efficiency and how to get the most out of the limited time we have.
