Tim Abbott - CV

I am a British Drupal website developer based in the UK with a strong background in open source technologies.

I have a broad range of experience in all things website related and am very quick to pick up new technologies. I'm equally at ease working as part of a team or as a sole developer. The majority of my work so far has been done remotely but I'm more than happy to commute should the right project come up.

Please see below for an overview of my skills and take a look at my portfolio to see them all in action.

I'm always on the look out for new oportunities so please contact me if you think I may be able to help or would like to know more about the services I can provide.
