Hey there, I’m Andrej! I like to think, create and solve puzzles.

(Also, I'm trying to fix the education system)

I started my career in localization when I was 19 and learned pretty much everything on the job. And I believe you can do the same — we learn best by rolling up our sleeves and doing the job.

So what's the purpose of overpriced education and getting a degree? I don't know. I think it's time for a change. That's why I started Localization Academy in 2021.

I hope that by creating affordable and practical online courses, our students will discover their future careers in weeks, not years.

Here’s my promise: during your course, you’ll learn awesome skills. But we’ll also have loads of fun doing it. I’m not your typical stuffy-suit industry veteran. Plus I have a good mic (and the voice to go with it).
