It's all about screenshots and descriptions of what they did, and what
your part in them was.

Sometimes the best solutions are the simplest ones!

I *really* dig it Joy. Never having seen your work - and having heard
you say on various occasions that you're not a programmer and not a
designer, but more of a project manager - I was not expecting much [[
maybe you were just lowering expectations? ;-) ]] -- but I like it alot.
Disciplined palette. Simple typography. You know where the accents go on
"resume" - what could be better? I might like to see a picture of you or
something a bit personal - something of /yourself/ - if not on the home
page on the contact page?
I really like the concept behind the %'s on this page:
indicating what percentage of what you
did. That's a brilliant idea. I may have to steal that one someday. :-)
Overall, very very nice work.
