    Its hard to read in my opinion but it might just be because I am looking at it on a widescreen monitor.
    p.s. I would drop the "2+ years of experience", might as well not let them know you dont have a ton of experience. I know they can figure out by the dates but no reason to make it easier for them. You probably want to slip through to somebody not paying attention to dates and just sees keywords.
