Dan's home page is clean, straight forward and professional. It is immediately clear where different types of information can be found.
In his introduction Dan provides a preview of what you will find in his e-portfolio. His style of writing is easy to read and he includes lots of visuals to engage and entice the reader. What he writes is not something that he came up with overnight. It is clear that he has thought through what he wants to say and why!
Dan uses a distinctive business-like pattern for stating his goals! The font color helps the goal statements to stand out and then he follows up with a 'Target' and 'Action Plan' including updates whenever possible. Impressive!
Not just a link to a project - Dan characterizes these selected work assignments such that he highlights personal and professional attributes that are important in the business world! Furthermore, his comments not only describe the project but also include reflective value statements that identify what he personally found to be important.
