About

Welcome to Foxy Panda!

First things first - if you're here to offer me a job, check out my CV. If you want to contact me, drop me an email at tim.kuzh (at) gmail.com.

Why hello there, dear Visitor. Glad to see you've found my blog. Here you'll find a bunch of short articles about my projects, which all happen to involve JavaScript in some shape or form (but I'm not biased or anything). I also post tutorials and reviews for different tools, and on super rare occasions I actually post about my life experiences, such as this amazing trip to Japan.

I really don't know what one would normally expect from an about page on a website such as this one, so I'm just going to dump a bunch of bullet points on you. I tried to be nice and separated the bullets points into categories. Enjoy!
