    Overall this is a good job of color and layout (no content to really look at).
    Some minor fixes are in order though.
    - You need to lose the "coming in June '05" intro
    - You need to fix the links which go to your Comcast 404
    - There are some spelling errors on the site (in the browser content, the word particular)
    - The word US in contact us is capitalized and also goes to your online portfolio and isn't really a contact

    There are also a few things I'm curious about.
    You have a domain for your family site, but for your online portfolio you have a link to a comcast page (that is way too long for anyone to remember).
    How can you effectively promote your portfolio without your own domain?

    None of the links work so it is really hard to evaluate your site on content.
    I think you have done a good job design wise and have a good looking site.
    Good luck with it.......

    It looks good.

    I looked into your source though and it was kinda scary. You use way too many tables. divs and css could probably cut your code size in half or more. There are a few places where you need to use tables, like keeping 2 side by side collumns the same length, displaying actual data like an excel sheet, and for the handy valign atribute. Luckily you only need to use one or two very simple tables for those cases and 90% of the time you can get by with div.

    One other thing, is there a reason the entire thing is inside one big frame? When I opened the source that confused me.
