Just as a disclaimer, I think of myself as a total amateur, despite having been a member for eight years!
Just looking at it though, I think where you went wrong was after he played (19.b5), moving the pawn up to attack your knight. Your response, counterattacking his loose knight on the g-file, looked too brazen to me. I think Na5 would have been better, because on your next move you could have put the knight down on c4, shielding the vulnerable c-file from the gaze of the Rook. In addition, you still have a pawn on the b-file, so you can still kick his Knight if it tries to go to c5.
Hope this helps.
