Hi, welcome to the site!

A few things I think you may want to look into:
0:40 you say that after you play e5 if he goes Nd5 you can exchange on d5 but I think he'd take back with the e-pawn instead of the c-pawn. You've effectively spent a tempo to let his problematic bishop on c8 out for free. Better to keep your knight on c3 and develop I think. Also consider Ne4, that's a juicy square for your knight!

2:30 I agree that d5 was a strong move- you keep a passed pawn with better development. Nice one!

4:50 You still have a pin on the c-file, so you could play Rdc1. He then has only one move to save his only trump in the position- his c-pawn. Can you find it?

At 6:00 you make no comment on your move e6+. The pawn was nicely guarded on e5 by your bishop. On e6 (as you found later) it's deeper in his camp and therefore harder for you to defend and easier for him to attack. Why not continue with your plan of brining in your knight to win the a-pawn? Once that goes you can concentrate on making a queen with no risk.

At 7:00 yeah, Ra2 defending your second rank was my first thought too. Nasty skewer there! Ouch.

At 7:50 if he wants to keep the (diagonal) opposition after you play Kc4, he should play Ke6.

At 9:40 you say you're just gonna win his pawn. Although this is true, the endgame is a draw if black knows what he's doing! Try finding the draw for black. If you have difficulties then I can post a solution for you.

At 10:00 g3 was a terrible move by him (you didn't comment). As you say, there's a good chance you're gonna win his f-pawn. The difference is that after you win it, you'll have a protected passed pawn and an easy win unlike in the position at 9:40.

After that, you played it out perfectly. Thanks for sharing, good game!
