Looks like you're missing the closing a tag for your link that's right after the opening header tag over here:

<header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <nav>

Is that opening a tag even supposed to be there?

thank you

This is how your code should look like.

<header> <nav> <ul> <li> <a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li> <li> <a href="about.html">About</a></li> <li> <a href="contact.html">Contact</a></li> </ul> </nav> <h1>Nick Pettit</h1> <h2>Designer</h2> </header>

thank you :)
