Summary

Hi! My name is Artjoms (you may call me Arty) and I am from Latvia. Russian is my native language, and I am fluent in English and Latvian. I've been freelance web developer / graphic designer since 2004, but it was not my primary job. However, since I moved to UK, I got a graphic designer / web developer job straight away. I am good in HTML, CSS, jQuery and other design stuff and I am keen to learn more and develop myself. I would like to invite you to review some of my works and my LinkedIn profile. I am dedicated to business and I am always achieve my targets. As an example, after 7 month of joining Microsoft as a Forum moderator, I got promoted to Microsoft Subject Matter Expert! As another example, you may review LinkedIn recommendations and I will be more than happy to provide references from my current and past employers.
