    Hi, a little word on your bio: Anything about your childhood, family, pets, high school, elementary school, story of your life is inappropriate as a first impression text. Potential employers will want to know what professional education is (right now, you don't even mention the name of your programs) and what skill it gave you. Focus on what makes you the right person to hire rather then what triggered your passion of art when you were young. Hopefully you won't take offence, but your profile picture makes you look young, you should be aware it can either play for you (enthusiastic, strong, fresh) or against (experience-less, less reliable/stable, less leadership) so be wary of that when writing your bio text and use it to your advantage.

    Other things you might want to consider: Buy a premium membership to get rid of the little "powered by deviantart", as well as a domain name to shorten your address and get rid of the DA stigma. You might want to go for a text color that's less distracting to since you want people to focus on your artwork.

    Right now, your portfolio is geared towards illustration, is that what you're aiming at?

    (You'll get more response if you post some art here rather then make people go to your portfolio)
