3 clean, professional themes for WordPress sites

Criteria: I decided to buy www.annettefrahm.com and make this a resume/portfolio site. I wanted something clean, simple and professional (no bows and lace or distracting patterns) but with options to change formats, such as number of columns. I wanted sans serif because I think it is somewhat easier to read online on a variety of computers and devices. Here are three potential themes. I have installed the first theme, Responsive, and am trying it out.

Responsive: http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/responsive
