I had the great pleasure of working with Dan Pearson while at National University. I brought Dan in as a contractor to assist with a short-term project to build a WordPress website for one of the National University affiliate programs. But while that was the original intention, it became apparent very quickly that Dan would be able to help us with much more.
Over the next year or so, Dan not only built new multi-language WordPress site for the National University International program, he also assisted with maintenance of three other sites built previously by an agency, and built websites and blogs for other affiliates in the system – a total of around 10 properties built in just over a year. Dan worked offsite, but was available by phone or in person whenever he was needed. He was always friendly, steady, and capable. I never worried about whether he would meet a deadline – he always came through.
One thing that makes Dan stand out in a crowd is his “can-do” attitude. He is always willing to jump in and learn whatever he needs to know so he could get the job done – whether it’s new collaboration tool or a learning management system plug-in, Dan digs in deep to understand and then implement with great results.
I have moved on to a new position, but I would look forward to having an opportunity to work with Dan again. His intelligence, skill, work ethic, and attitude will make him an asset to any organization lucky enough to hire him!
