Hi, I'm Victor
Welcome to my responsive-, and very performant website.
I am a front-end webdeveloper from the Netherlands. Currently, I am employed at Bluebird Day where I develop e-commerce and retail websites. Working on the web on and off since the early 2000's, I've been running my own business on the side, since 2009, doing freelance development and design.
Currently, I like to focus on performance optimisation, ES6, VueJS, large scale (S)CSS architecture and accessibility. I am fluent in Dutch, English and sarcasm.
I went to school: In 2011 I graduated St. Joost art academy where I focussed on interactive art installations. Before that I attended a 4 year course at Grafisch Lyceum Utrecht on multimedia design (which meant learning Macromedia Director, 3D Studio Max and dragging around some tables in Dreamweaver). On the side I was building websites and taking on design jobs for bands and personal projects. This is where I actually learned something.

Boss / Front-End Developer / Designer.
My own business which I operate since 2009. Originally I simply started this to be able to send invoices for odd jobs to support me through my studies. In 2011 my girlfriend entered the company. She handles all kinds of graphic- and digital design while I handle all kinds of webdevelopment, webdesign- and multimedia projects.

My main duty was animating soldering-machine processes for sales presentations using Flash and structuring/designing presentations for the accountmanagers and sales representatives. Next to that I maintained all corporate identity items and handled the website. I resigned to attend the Art Academy.
You can find me on Twitter, where I don't really tweet, and on LinkedIn, where I'll ignore you if you're an external recruiter.
