"I went into the hospitality management field because it is a very dynamic industry with a lot of opportunities and possibilities for business endeavours.

With my Bachelor's Degree in Hospitality and Events Management from the Swiss Hotel Management School and work experiences through internships and work, I became the founder and CEO of my own company: Restau-Rateur, a restaurant holding company in Riga, Latvia. We own the renowned International restaurant chain, the Melna Bite restaurant in Riga and have a dozen new projects in the pipeline for the near future.

Swiss Hotel Management School gave me a very strong basic knowledge and a chance to analyze the hospitality industry from a different perspective than that of a professional businessman.

This industry is very dynamic and every single day brings new highlights and challenges.

To anyone considering the world of hospitality, I recommend to go there only if you are ready to devote yourself to this industry. The only chance to succeed in this job is to take it as if it were the most important one in your life."
