"Your website looks like it's from the 1970s" - a friend born in 2002.
This website had a few purposes, and I feel like this old-school, 2005 design fulfills them.
The first purpose is that it has to display information about me. The website must to be easy to navigate. Most of that is done through the home page. One of the things I focused on is reducing the required number of clicks to get to any given piece of content.. I didn't have a separate "Contact" page because I could fit everything on the home page. By similar logic I don't have a CV page that says "you can find my CV here." I have seen too many beautiful but confusing websites, and do not want finding something on this site to be difficult for anyone.
After the primary purposes are out of the way, I wanted this website to be memorable. Thus, this non-generic, completely-written-in-html-using-visual-studio-code website was born. I'm not the only one who has a beige-colored super-simple website, but there are so few of us out here that it's unique enough for me.
I do still want to add some more decorations to the different pages, but I haven't gotten to those yet. Maybe some fancy lines on the side.
That being said, I am open to suggestions! Feel free to email me.
