Career[edit]

Ambrulevičius began learning to skate in 1998.[1] He won the Lithuanian senior title for the first time in 2007. His first major international competition was the 2007 Junior Worlds; he placed 45th in the short program and did not qualify for the free skate.

In the 2007–08 season, Ambrulevičius won his second national title. He competed in the 2008 Junior Worlds and once again placed last, this time 47th. He competed at the 2008 World Championships, where he finished 45th.

In the summer of 2014, Ambrulevičius teamed up with American skater Taylor Tran to compete in ice dancing for Lithuania.[2] They made their international debut at the Tallinn Trophy in December 2014.
