In 2012, I , @sergejevic on Twitter, joined the passionate and innovative URBACT team as their Communication Manager. Before, for 10 years, I was working for the Intra-European Organisation of Tax Administrations and was responsible for the whole communication area in the IOTA Secretariat. Following my graduate studies in political science - international relations and post-graduate studies in philosophy at the University of Latvia, I started to work in the Latvian Red Cross as the Dissemination Officer. In 2000 I joined the Latvian State Revenue Service as a Chief Specialist of Project Analysis Division within the Modernization Project Implementation Department, where I was responsible on quality and risk analysis of the State Revenue Service's Modernization Project. I am also an art photographer with several personal and group exhibitions held in Latvia and Hungary.
