I'm Peter Vanags. Welcome to my personal, work and family web site.
I'm a software architect and musician living in Cardiff by the Sea, California.
When I'm not busy with that stuff, my wife and I also run a pet care business and are also launching an innovative new pet hydration product.
Vanags means "hawk" in the Latvian language. That's why pictures of this bird are plastered everywhere. Some people say Latvian sounds a lot like English spoken backwards. It also happens to be one of the most useless languages in the world to be fluent in. Unless you live in Latvia, that is.
The sculpture on the right is by an artist named Sean Guerrero, he makes these out of old car bumpers. This is a smaller piece of his. (But it still weighs nearly 50 pounds!) Sean usually sculpts full-sized megafauna like horses, elk, moose, deer, bears, and sasquatches. Also bizarre spacecraft, but that's a whole other story.
