Ok since you're asking for constructive criticism i will give you mine; on how you could've improved your game. Congrats on your win, by the way. The first of many I'm sure.
1. For move 7 it would have been better for you too take his g4 pawn with either your knight or bishop.
2. Move 9 when you lowered your d5 pawn let's him take your c5 pawn with his bishop if he wants.
3. For move 11. It was too soon to move your rook off of f8. Instead you should have taken his f3 knight with your e4 pawn, threatening his queen. And if he does take your rook then you'd take his queen and also threatening his rook after taking his queen so if he tries to move his bishop from f8 after taking your rook then you will also take his rook giving check.
4. For move 13. Instead of bishop g7. Knight to e5 threatening his queen and triple attacking his g4 pawn would have won his pawn, i think.
