Reminds me of the content for the single page hero portfolio. 馃槈
I actually like it as it is concise, compact and that way the pinned projects are in the view right after 馃槈

This is the look that I wanted. The readme block plays well with other surrounding information. Like a story-telling. I discard those fancy infographics because the whole look would cause distraction. Too much noise.

I'm not in love with it tbh, I'd like to change to header image to something smaller and find a nice set of icons for the languages/tech. If you have any tip, I'd love to hear it!

EDIT: Changed the header to something smaller (I like the idea of having an image there). I'm working on updating my description!

    After working for a while as a journalist, I became a consultant specialized in Information Architecture of websites, portals and web applications. Over the last few years I turned almost exclusively to programming (self-taught, don't ask how, I'm not sure I have a short answer to that), and I mostly develop websites, themes and plugins for WordPress.
