I think it's too sparse, but still looks nice.

Also, for what it's worth. If I was at home on my dial-up, I would have closed it the moment I saw "Loading...".

What I would do to get the original file size down would be supply thumbnails for the artwork, then, if you click on the thumbnail, load the full version.

Hi, I think the design is very nice and doesn't suffer from sparseness at all.

However, as has already been mentioned, the loading screen is off-putting - there are still a good few people out there using dial-up connections.

Personally I loved your site!!!
It's beautiful! I love the way everything flows over the screen!!!
There is little to be said. You clearly know what you are doing, but I do have these comments:
1. There isn't much to the intro. Not worth the watch.
2. You might want some instructions on the page. Like on "Works" page you might want to add some "Hints" or plain text rather than just the icons. Or with the games... Yes, every one knwos how pong works (or do they?) but which keys am I suppose to use?
3. On a regular (out-dated) dial-up modem the site might take forever to load.

Other than that. Well done!!!!

You're very good at flash that is for sure. It looks really nice.

There one thing you should know though. When a search engine visits your site it is going to be blind. Search engines cant see flash. This is a problem because your site will not be very well represented in search engines. When your not visible in search engines how will the users find your site?

I agree with previous post, the site flows really well. I like the creativity in that your not led around the site like a child. You have to kind of look around to navigate through pictures. Thats nice.

I too would have closed the site when I saw it loading. Even still I was tempted to skip intro as soon as I saw it.

Your site is nice...no doubt

However, what is the point of the intro? Is it just to show off your skills. To me, it seems a waste of time waiting for the intro to load and then be disappointed by nothing really exciting from the intro. I would have especially been disappointed if i was on dial-up. Possibly adding sound would be great.

Overall, you did an excellent job using Flash, the design is very smooth and cool. Good job!

Try to cut down on loading time, but PLEASE make the intro automatically open instead of asking you to enter. What are the reasons for the squares? I mean, well I have nothing against the squares, but why are they there? I don't see a point. Anyway, nice website, keep up the good work mate!

I think your site is nice and flows well, but a couple of things:

1. seems like alot of empty space, especially the two menu bars on the left.

2. Intro could be shortened up a bit

3. Text size under your bio and resume could be increased, it seemed really small.

Overall, I think it is a really nice site and you do nice work!

I think it also needs a bit more development put into it. Maybe a sidebar, or a bar at the top... ANYTHING! It's really dull at the moment. Ah well... that's me and my wierd Ideas. Good work though
