Well, basically these are the things that you need to know about me (my professional skills actually) and yes i do have another dozen secret talents but i am not the  kind of guy that talks about them . I mostly use Drupal 6.x or 7.x as a CMS (Wordpress and Joomla are fine too, but i use Drupal) and the extremely popular 960 Grid.gs CSS framework for your Web design. If you think you are ready for your next project or almost ready, then feel free to contact me at letsdothis [at ] pixelthis.gr or drop a tweet at @nikhtaras or check me out  at facebook  or at linkedin or at deviantart .
