So, how'd I do?

You underexposed it and that makes the photo look dull. Much more light would have made a big difference. Try it next time. You can use the same settings otherwise but just keep increasing the power of your flash until it looks better. You could have moved the softbox a little (or used a reflector if you have one) to lighten the other side of face more and get those catch lights in place. Unless you were trying to achieve some kind of Malekith the Accursed look (comic book reference) or some other kind of dramatic effect. I like the composition but your posture could be better (see the neck area).
