I want to be careful about how I phrase this, because I want to be constructive. First, I like the fact that you are striving to be unique; there’s a lot to be said for trying to break the mold and stand out a bit.

Having said that, there is absolutely nothing about your website that would convince me, or a prospective client, to pay you $75/hour for your services. There are several punctuation errors, the portfolio section is blank, the tone is far, far too casual, and there’s a general lack of content. I know more about your hobbies than I do about your qualifications. I’ll also second @nickwalters87 in regards to Comic Sans.

Again, I’m not trying to attack here, and I apologize if my tone seems harsh. However, if you’re asking $75 per hour, your site needs to convince prospective clients that you are an all-around web ninja. This site just doesn’t get the job done in that regard.
