I'm surprised that no one had offered any feedback from this post yet. I'm sorry that I missed it when you'd initially posted it.
Personally, I think that you've got a great design style, and certainly have talent. I was very impressed with alot of your portfolio pieces in all categories. I wasn't too impressed with the style of your actual website, as I think that you've done much more impressive work with the website design samples that are provided in your portfolio, but that comes down to just my own personal taste.
All in all, I think you've got excellent skills, and i'm looking forward to seeing more of your designs

As far as your site is considered, I think you are on a good track. But, in my own opinion, there's still some work to do.
I like the colors you have chosen. The combination of greys work great. That orange fits also well in your color scheme. The thing that bothers me is that this orange seems to be somehow vibrating on that grey, which makes it hard to read. Maybe try to put it on white, as you did on your inside pages. And the enter button is too small for my eyes. It seems like it is eaten by the white in the background.
For the inside, I think you have done a great job of separating the information. As RussellClow stated above, the transition in the opening animation is not fast enough. And you may want to give other sections a transition as well because they are now appearing without any fading or moving... Try spicing it up a little bit.
But overall a great site and layout with a lot of potential !
Hope this helps !

I think it is not to the level it can be I mean.... there is nothing special about it. or different. it does have a nice retro kind of look to what you do have but nothing says " HEY I AM HERE AND I AM COOL"
I can tell you are talented from your exampl works though so you will get it
maybe a subtle flash animation on your logo ? might help

I agree with a lot of what Jenn had to say. Your site transitions in flash seem a bit slow to me, but the concept behind what you are doing is solid.
One personal view I have on portfolio sites is that it is your chance to show off the kind of work you are capable outside of the realm of your normal day-to-day clients. Being more experimental, while still presenting your work in a manner in which potential customers would still be willing to pursue a working relationship.
Just some thoughts, but the overall concept you have going is moving in a solid direction.
