    great site! (your side projects rock, btw)

    i noticed two things that haven't been mentioned:

    • clicking on "hire me" leads to thoughtbot. "wait a second", the cient thinks, "I wanted to hire YOU. who's thoughtbot? who am I writing to now?" maybe have a little "hire me" site explaning the process? (i know it's in the homepage copy, but some might read over it or have forgotten it after looking at the other pages)

    • your about text gets very programming-heavy at the end. it's awesome that you learn new things but maybe it's a bit too specific (some potential clients might not know and care what framer is). and it somewhat waters down your focus. what do you do exactly?

      I agree on the thoughtbot link. i was confused for a second why the hire me page looked completely different. took me a second to clue in.

      I agreee with your second point as well. maybe OP could add a page talking about what he is currently learning, and keep the about page more "what i already know/who i am"?
