Who I am

My name is Yavor* *pronounced as \'jɑvoR\, spelled "Явор" in Bulgarian and meaning "sycamore"


About me

I am a web developer and designer from Bulgaria (residing in the UK) with a BA in Business Administration, minor in Computer Science and an MSc in Digital Media. I am the lead guitarist of a rarely but exclusively playing band called Quiet Hours. I love fast, secure, well architectured, standards compliant and good looking web applications...and Metallica.

My experience

I have visited almost all fields of digital media including video editing and compositing, sound recording and mixing, image processing, 2D and 3D graphics, animation, programming and web technologies. However, my true love is creating for the web and I enjoy all aspects of it - from back-end to client-side development and graphics.

My expertise

I have knowledge and experience in working with MySQL, PHP (LAMP or WAMP), JavaScript (JQuery), Actionscript 3.0, XHTML, HTML5, CSS 2.1 and CSS 3. I love the simplicity and lightness of CodeIgniter and the robustness of the Zend framework. I also enjoy creating graphics using mainly Adobe Photoshop and Autodesk 3D Studio Max.
