Your portfolio site looks promising, but based on the number of projects you've posted there I would expect to see a much larger selection of code samples.

Is there any code you've written - anything at all that you're either happy with or could polish - that you could add to your github site? When I go looking for potential recruits, my process is something like this:
  • Assess amount of experience candidate claims to have
  • See if that squares with reality (overinflated or wildly conservative estimates of skill are warning signs IMO)
  • Find code to see how well candidate has learned from said experience
In general, the larger the corpus of code to look at, the more accurately I can gauge important things like how well a candidate understands their language(s) of choice, how much experience they have with large code bases, how disciplined they are, how well they adhere to stylistic guidelines, and so on.

The fact that you have a code sample is good, but it's so trivial that it doesn't tell me anything about your abilities as a programmer.

Beyond that, it's a great start - good luck!
