Hi, I’m Nils Hendriks, a.k.a. nirusu. I’ve been working in web development since 1995. In 2007, I moved to Singapore and in 2011 to Tokyo, where I worked as a freelance Front End Web Developer.

Now, back in Amsterdam, The Netherlands I'm running my own studio, called nirusu and offering a variety of services like web development, design, photography and 3D visualisation.

As a side project I started A Different Index as a personal visual archive of everything I find interesting. Most likely it has something to do with design (in its broadest sense).

My personal photo portfolio can be found here
