    +1 for the community giving some very valuable feedback. I really love to see all the comments. Only a few a spam.

    Concerning your work, it looks great. You are obviously a product of big brand design. This means you work is beautiful but lack a usability. I would believe this is where the scrolling, and personal branding copy have been mislead.

    I would also think that another larger firm would snatch you up quickly. "Looks good, doesn't care about usability = get him!"

    If you are positioning as a specialty UI designer, well done. If you are trying to move anywhere further out or up, pause and consider aspects of the site that will deter the actual experience of visiting your site.

    1. Will the scrolling issues make users miss information? yes.
    2. Will the stuffy copy mislead users to believe I am stuffy? sure.
    3. Will the dramatic portrait appearing first subtly say I am cooler than my work? for some.
    4. Is your last nave item too close to the arrow when the nav is expanded? absolutely ;)

    It's pretty. Making is for user friendly will make it great. Well done.

      Thanks for the comment, kind words, and unfiltered criticism. I value the feedback and you are correct in most places. The scrolling is obviously an issue here that needs to be addressed, as it works nicely with my trackpad but users seems to be having problems with it. Stuffy copy? I'll work on it, that was not my intent and that is not who I am or how I want to be perceived, thanks. Dramatic portrait? Not really what I wanted Ideally but I have to make the best of my resources, which are extremely limited. Also, I do believe there is value in tying a face to a name.

      Thanks again.
