Giving Back

Humor me for a moment as I give a glimpse of my non-professional life. I promise it has something to do with design and development. Last Saturday, I joined the GCF Youth L.I.V.E.

Hello!

Hello!

Hello and welcome! Let me introduce myself. I am Robin James Yu but my friends call me “RJ”. I’m a freelance web designer and developer based in Manila, Philippines and I have a passion for creating modern and beautiful websites that work as good as they look.

It’s been about 2 weeks since I left my day job, a day before my 22nd birthday, and started this freelance thing. To say the least, I’m loving every minute. You can learn more about me and my work at my portfolio page and my about page. If you wish to hire me for a project, you may use the contact form on the right to get a hold of me.
