With his Bachelor’s of Arts degree in Journalism/Public Relations & Film from California State University, Long Beach, he is equipped with tools in communications, writing, photography, media design and social media.
He finds himself constantly writing, whether it’s poetry, articles, blogging or everything in between. As a writer, he wants to focus on social commentary that deals with the intersections of race, gender, sexuality and body positivity – all topics that make up who Jordan is.
As a photographer, he wants to capture context for stories, whether its in his own blog or stories of other writers. He also wants to engage more with conceptual shots and city-photography, ultimately shaping his photos into their own stories.
During his time at CSULB, he was a staff writer at the Long Beach Union Weekly newspaper from 2015-16, later becoming the Opinions Editor from 2016-2017. His time there allowed him to hone his skills in commentary, AP style writing and media design, becoming proficient in Adobe InDesign and Photoshop. He believes in the idea of crafting and mastering your voice, which led him to his work with helping writers cultivate and effectively use their own voice.
Currently, he works as a Social Media Assistant for Associated Students, Inc. an auxiliary non-profit within CSULB, which owns & operates the University Student Union as well as several other facilities on campus. His work makes him proficient in content curation of social media channels and digital marketing.
On the side, he is maintaining a social project, This Is Me, on social media and through blog, which has gained national attention when his photo of model, Megan Kimberling, was featured by PLUS Model Magazine. His friend, Sylvana Uribe, manages the social media for the project. He also is the co-creator of The Self Podcast, which is on iTunes and Google Play Music with his friend, Emily Ayers.
