in your work experience which is unprofessional IMHO. Don't try to create a large sheet by adding fill jobs which has nothing to do with your target branch (IT).

Disclaimer: I'm not HR, this is just my personal opinion
Overall your page looks clean and professional.
But I think that a portfolio is more about your work and skills, than personal things. I.e. you wrotein your work experience which is unprofessional IMHO. Don't try to create a large sheet by adding fill jobs which has nothing to do with your target branch (IT).
The navigation to your games/tech demos is quite clumpsy, a simpler, cleaner, directer navigation would be nice.
Revisit your screenshots, add only really cool screenshots (quality instead of quantity). I.e the ray-tracer refraction screenshot is pretty hard to read. Either remake it (i.e. put a half covered sphere behind the glass sphere), or remove it.
Nevertheless, you seems to be on the right track. Good work sofar.

Not bad stuff at all. A little more than 2c from me...
Like Ashaman, I too found the navigation a little clumsy. I think the intention here is good and it does look at little better than a basic alternative, but it does have issues.
Each of the demo pages appears to have what initially looks to be a slideshow of static screens with videos below. It's not actually obvious that the slideshow is a slideshow of videos and it was only on the second time I looked at the entire portfolio that I realized that wasn't the case. More important people looking at this (potential employers) might make the same mistake and not give it a second shot so I do think this is an issue because some of these 'screenshots' just look too basic* until you realize they are a video.
Either way I would make all videos look like videos in the same way - presenting them with the same control consistently even if you have to put more videos on the same page and not use the video slideshow type control (or make it a screenshot slideshow). Because this might increase the # of videos on each page I would also take some of the more basic videos off - there's no need to show solitary bouncing ball videos when you have ones with 100's in for example.
Good point, I will take that with me when I go over the content again!
Finally, the list of features for each demo is fine but I would put paragraphs below that with more technical detail. It wouldn't look out of place and of course, reading it is optional. It therefore adds, but not takes anything away.
