This is my first post on Dribbble and I thought I would take this opportunity to upload a few screenshots from my new portfolio site. Any feedback is welcome. Thanks!

Welcome to the game.
Thank you for all the kind words. It's great to be here!
Great shot. Welcome.
That's pretty awesome. Welcome
Brilliant, the site is awesome! Welcome to the game! I look forward to see what else you bring.
Wow, looks nice. Pleased to meet you here
Welcome. I think the website is a bit overwhelming with effects and it wasn't very pleasing to navigate through the different areas. So i think you could benefit from investigating the UX.
Nice debut. Congratulations and welcome to dribbble :-)
@Baard Kolstad Thanks for the constructive feedback, it is definitely nice to hear. I was hoping for someone to offer up suggestions. I did experiment with many different effects hoping that it would bring the site to life but it's good to know it may have hurt the overall experience.
It would be wise to re-think a few things and identify the weak areas. When you are in designing/building mode it's easy to overlook those things and very helpful when someone calls them out. I did notice recently how it becomes sluggish and hard to use if one has an old machine or slow internet connection and the mobile experience needs a lot of attention as well. It's an ongoing process and getting a site live is the first step. I appreciate your comments and I will work to improve upon on the overall UX.
Many thanks to everyone taking the time to write and it's a pleasure being here! I look forward to seeing everyone's great work and contributing more myself. Cheers!
Looks great but incredibly choppy and slow for me, even with a fast computer and internet connection. Firefox seems to be the majority of the problem.
It is really beautiful. I can't even imagine how hard it must have been to develop the entire thing.
However, this is a bit too cluttered and slow for me (maybe my Mac Air is getting old?). I'd rather have more space, less effects and then gain in term of usability.
Welcome to Dribbble though. You sir are very talented.
@John Moore @Mathieu Mayer-Mazzoli Thanks for the great feedback, I did notice performance issues in FireFox as well and It seems to perform the best in Chrome. Safari is a close second but ideally it should perform the same in all browsers and in a perfect world, IE. Your Mac Air should run it just fine once I fix some things.
It was definitely a challenge to build especially working with new technologies that are constantly changing and being updated, but that is also part of the fun! Memory management is probably the most difficult thing to deal with in building a single-page apps that are DOM heavy and have a large event stack. After doing some JS benchmarking, I have identified the main issues causing it to perform slowly. I will probably have to re-think the image grid showcasing all of the projects and how that piece looks and works, as it seems to be the bulk of the problem. Some targeted front-end integrated tests will also help optimize things a lot. The other pages seem to perform fine though which is great news! If only everything could be perfect, right?
I agree though, more space, less effects and focus on performance will go a long way in terms of usability and overall UX. Much appreciated guys and thank you for the kind words as well. Long live Dribbble !
I can't mute the audio.
@Alan Houser There is a toggle audio button in the top right corner, did you see it? Alternatively, you can click the small "gear" icon in bottom of the sidebar slide-out menu and click "sounds" to enable or disable the audio. If neither of those methods work please let me know!
