I like the look of it, and it looks solid. I like the sandbox as well, but I am curious about why don't you showcase more of your projects or have a separate page for it?

Appreciate the kind words and great question!

As a father of twins and full-time engineer, larger projects simply aren't feasible. As the time I'd spend building and then maintaining a project, would cut into the time I've set aside for family or my own personal study/ growth.

Using sandboxes (and a blog), I can still demonstrate my abilities as a developer, but focus on specific gaps in knowledge and output more work/ content. However, this approach isn't for everyone. I'm fortunate in that I already have professional experience under my belt and can talk to that work/ my contributions on previous projects, teams, etc.

Hope this helps clears things up!
