The old site shows a 404 and according to your new website, you're a "draphic designer". Looks nice though

I really like it. I'm about to start developing my own so seeing this gives me a lot of inspiration.

 

Couple of pointers from me. The carousel at the top could do with right and left buttons. I love the click and drag for scrolling, but it's not too obvious and not really that user friendly. Also, the effects and JS work in general is really nice, in some parts like on the work section it was really causing my beefy work PC to crawl a little which isn't nice. 

 

Other than that, nice job.

Only thing I would change is your lack of shirt >.<

 

I just think it's a bit.. odd? for a business site.

 

You never see pictures of shirtless execs around a conference table in stock photos :p

 

Other than that, it looks great :)

I like the site, but again it needs to be pointed out that you need to proof read your work:

I am confident that my combination of practical work experience and solid educational experience.

That what? I assume you mean that you are confident in your level of practical experience and educational experience?

My participation in a diversity of past projects, both as a team member and as a leader, has thought me the value of teamwork and that success depends of all team member’s actions.

Taught.

It's a tiny litte thing, I admit, but if you're going to be providing this as an example of your level of work then it should be checked.

Also, on the main page your "About me" button goes no where. Instead you need to go to the menu and select the "about me" option there.

The, what i can only assume is a naked picture of yourself, needs to go.
 
draphic designer?
 
'take the plunge' - not sure if this is the right wording.. is it a plunge? i'd associate this sentence with doing something after some hesititation.
 
'understand the different between pixels to dots?' - I don't understand this even if it was spelled correctly, and i'm a designer myself.. even if it made sense i don't think your clients will care, they are hiring you because they don't understand it.
 
Underneath it has a button called 'tools' which does nothing.. assuming it will lead to a page what tools you use, again i don't think your clients will care.
 
"I am confident that my combination of practical work experience and solid educational experience." ..confident that what?

 

Completely remove your skills on the about page - this is one of the worst trends i've seen on personal design portfolios... you have 90% experience with Photoshop, huh? Well i just visited another portfolio and that guy has 97% experience with Photoshop - cya! .. only 30% jQuery? why would you list this at all, anyone who needs jQuery will surely find someone else.

 

Over all the site is nice and you've done some great work but the content needs fixing before you go live with this.

The picture is a bit disturbing like this LOL

 

Other then that the menubar animation might look cooler if it animated based on the scroll position instead of time.

 

The scrollbar does not fit, make it lighter or just use the system scrollbar, you can also consider putting a transparent ios like scrollbar on top of the content.

 

The work page looks like a bomb just has been detonated :/ add a different color to each tile image as overlay to clean it up and/or also some better padding/margins.

 

Haven't had time to look at the other pages.

+1 on the shirt, but simply put, remove that photo, it's your personal presentation, not a pr0n blog.

What's a draphic designer?  Is that on purpose, or is it supposed to be graphic?

The old site is better, it's easier to navigate, faster and straight to the point... it highlights the work you have done and some of your skills. job done. The design isn't great but pretty much like it better than your new design.

 

Also it looks like you are putting your home address on there, i'd remove that as well. it doesn't look professional but thats ok, as your mainly internet based you don't need a physical address.. i don't list any addresses on my site.
