The image header puts me off you site because it takes up around 40% of my vertical screen space and I have to scroll each page to get past the first paragraph. Also, the images don't belong to you or relate to your demos in any way.

Either have a smaller banner that is relevant to your site or remove it completely.

With your resume, remove the objective. You already explained it on the first page, it doesn't need repeating. You also need a downloadable/printable version in either a Word .doc and/or PDF. Trim the size of your resume to 1 page if you are in the US, 2 pages for a CV in the UK.

The demo page also needs work. With your pair project, since you shared programming responsibilities, list what you specifically did for the demo. Also:

Since then, we have not collaborated on making adjustments and improvements.
Actually says to the person reading it:
Quote:
We couldn't be bothered to work on it after we handed it in for X reason.
This may not be what you were intending to say but that is what may come across. Remove it.

Just finished updates to my website and resume. Any criticism would be awesome.

Gshonk,

You had me at "Writing/Documentation Skills".

On second thought, what kind of skills? Adroit? Verbose? Passing?

Your site gives me the impression that you spend a lot of time working on projects, and that you take what you do seriously and with passion.

By the by, my ride is a 52" hydrostatic drive eXmark w/ sulky. What's yours?

The OpenGL demo is putting me off. If you work on it a little more and add lighting and shadows, it will look a lot better. IMO, the tank game should be second on the page, not last.

Hmm since I am talking about design and tech docs I would say they are definitely not verbose (except for maybe tech. words). I can be adroit in situations but what I really mean is that I can get my point across in a document and that I enjoy writing in my spare time. I don't expect to write for games, my writing is much more personal and very much a social commentary for myself.

Haha. I used a John Deer with a 42" deck. I can not remember the model at this time. But it was an old steering wheel kind. I never made enough money to upgrade it.

I went ahead and moved the tank game up. It is definitely better that way. I do not intend to keep the OpenGL project up much longer since I am working on a full 3d game right now. I just have it up to show that I know 3d
