New front page with portfolio!

I’ve been thinking about segmenting my blog from my portfolio and ‘about me‘ for a while. Think no more! I took the time and went through with it.

In an initial trial, I’ve redesigned my front page and SethSandler.com now goes to a creative portfolio and short biography.
