A little about me

My name is Robin Ambachtsheer and I'm a professional front-end developer and (web)designer, currently employed at Tesla Motors. Next to my professional career I've also taken on webdesign projects as a freelancer.

I see design more as a hobby grown out of control as I to create usable, clean interfaces. My expertise lies in standards based XHTML and CSS, jQuery, PHP and some Adobe Photoshop magic for the creative days. The Content Management System of choice is Drupal, since I've built a strong knowledge around it. Other CMSes I've worked with are Joomla, Typo3 and Wordpress.
