Robin Wilkie

I'm a web developer based in Glasgow, Scotland. After working in newspapers as a picture editor I recently graduated with a BSc in Web and Mobile Development with distinction. I specialise in UX and front-end development using HTML, CSS, Javascript and PHP.

I'm constantly looking to improve my skills and understanding in all aspects of web and mobile development and user centered design. Currently I'm doing a deep dive into React and Redux. I also enjoy music, photography and drinking an unhealthy amount of coffee.
