Hi Leo! First step is to go through all your bullet points under each project and standardize them regarding:

  1. capitalization (Sentence case vs. Title Case vs. all lowercase; I recommend Sentence case because it's the easiest to read and looks natural but not informal)
  2. verb tense (build vs building vs built; I'd probably use past tense for completed projects)

Here are a few bolded errors - let me know if they're not clear. I'll check the rest once you've updated your bullets.
