I thought <nav></nav> would represent a group of introductory or navigational content... what am I missing o_O

Maybe I'm putting it in the wrong spot... it's probably a simple fix and I'm just not registering. haha

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <link href="styles.css" rel="stylesheet">
    <title>My Portfolio</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <nav>
    <ul>
      <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Work</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>            
    </ul>
    <h1>My Web Design &amp; Development Portfolio!</h1> 
    <p>A site featuring my latest work.</p>
    </nav>

    <h2>Welcome</h2> 
    <p>Fusce semper id ipsum sed scelerisque. Etiam nec elementum massa. Pellentesque tristique ex ac ipsum hendrerit, eget feugiat ante faucibus.</p>
    <ul>
      <li><a href="#">Recent project #1</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Recent project #2</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Recent project #3</a></li>     
    </ul>

    <p>&copy; 2017 My Portfolio</p>

you have right but whot about <header> </header> or <section></section> or <main> </main> or <footer></footer> or <aside>

by using header TAG you telling to browser this is Head of my site and usualy in Header there is <nav> but not necessery and in this case its better put <header> or <section> why ? because h and p tags :)

PS in your case :

<header>    
    <ul>
      <li><a href="#">About</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Work</a></li>
      <li><a href="#">Contact</a></li>            
    </ul>
    <h1>My Web Design &amp; Development Portfolio!</h1> 
    <p>A site featuring my latest work.</p>
</header>

Body -> Header -> Nav :) usuely order :) i have never saw Body -> Nav if you have saw it then its not HTML 5 CODE :)
