Music has played a vital role in Jordan’s life. Ever since his teenage years, he has been playing punk rock, alternative 90’s shoe gaze, and heavy metal. From designing album art, touring and recording multiple albums, Jordan finds plenty of inspiration through music. Currently he is writing and recording post-rock music, you can listen here.

Landscape photography, studio and production photography and on-set photography for films keeps Jordan busy when not designing.

In his free time, Jordan paints large canvas art using abstract mediums and methods. Diagnosed with a life-threatening disease known as XLA at birth, Jordan now uses this to fuel his art through abstract paintings using syringes and needles and medical supplies filled with paint. He has also summited some of the largest mountains in the U.S. and hunt/fish for his own food.
