What I love to do, besides working ;)

Improvisation theater

Since 2000, I have been an improvisational theater actress. I started this passion in Valmiera, when I came to Riga I played for 13 years in the cradle of the Latvian improvisational theater "Hamlet", later together with my friends I created the first English-acting improvisational theater in Latvia "LettiNoir". I love to go to foreign international improvisation festivals to play with the world's best!

This year you can find me in Nepal improv fest (Begining or April)


Getting to know other cultures broadens the horizon, increases empathy and tolerance for diversity. That is why, whenever possible, I like to go to unknown countries and cultures. When traveling, I prefer nature trails over cities. So far the most distant countries that I have visited are the Dominican Republic, Mexico, Argentina, India and the Republic of South Africa. And my top favorite are Jordan and Georgia.


In positive psychology there is such a term "flow". It represents the state between "everything is boring" and "I'm angry because this is too complicated". In the state of flow, there is that pleasant feeling of excitement when time stops and you want to do more and more. I have it when I snowboard. I am nowhere near a great athlete, but I really like this sport. In the summer, I get the same feeling when riding a wakeboard.
