I'm Tim and I am a freelance programmer/Unix server admin. Mainly programming for the web, but secretly tasting the offline as well.

I started out as an electrical engineer in some dark and forgotten age, did some artsy-fartsy art collage after that and finally ended up in the sad world of the web. Over the past few years my work varied from design, to interface and now arrived in back-end fiddling.

My weapons of choice in my daily on- and offline hacking are Emacs, Mercurial, Git, Debian, i3, Blender, Gimp, Inkscape, ... .

I program:

  • a load of Python
  • a ton of JavaScript
  • not enough Scheme
  • more PHP then I like

Over the past few years I've been telling people I know a lot about Drupal (hence why I'm still on the PHP bandwagon) and I've been developing a few modules for this "framework" as well. Out of the love for bottom-up development (and the less favorable attitude towards over-bloated frameworks, like the one mentioned a few words back) my Python work usually revolves around Flask and its foundations or around statically creating pages with Nikola.

Besides spending many hours a day staring at computer screens, I have a deep interest for Japanese culture and Whisky.
