I wanted to put together a portfolio site that heavily emphasized blogging and social media. The portfolio pieces and my blog posts happily co-exist and have ratings, social media and “tweet this” links.

I really like the slightly grungy textures in the header and footer areas of this site, the dark background is working for this site too since everything is made large enough and legible enough.
