I have tried and tried again to make a portfolio website I actually enjoy (see my history). However, I have finally built one that I liked enough to make mobile-responsive, and want some feedback for things to do better, and your thoughts and feedback. The site is not finished, however, I plan to work on it in the coming days and weeks.
Wow! I love the uniqueness of the "EJ" transforming into your name! I would recommend making the "E" and the "J" a slightly darker grey, before you start hovering over them. And maybe make the color transition a bit quicker.
I like the green color effect when you hover over a navigational item. If you can, I would make the text and font smaller for desktop monitors, and possibly remove jQuery. :)
