Consider this my Cover Letter
Hi there! My name's Jordan. Nice to meet you. Let's take a scroll together.
I'm a Philadelphia native
I grew up right outside the city, spending my childhood in Upper Darby, Wynnewood, and Cherry Hill. On a normal weekend you could find me taking the MFL or riding my bike into the city, camera slung on my side. When it was time to go off to college I stayed close, attending The College of New Jersey before transferring to the University of Pennsylvania. Since graduating in December 2017, I've spent my time road tripping, reconnecting with friends and family across the country, and fixing up an old motorcycle.
My Philly Facts
- Best views: Drexel Park, Art Museum steps, Ben Franklin Bridge pedestrian walkway, Belmont Plateau, City Hall observation deck
- Favorite people watching spot: FDR skate park
- Best ramen: Cheu Noodle Bar
- Best cheesesteak: Jim's on South Street
- Best bars: Time (great live music), Bob and Barbara's (can get old, but fun music and cheap drinks), Frankford Hall (Nice atmosphere to catch up with friends, play games, and drink German beer)
- Where to take your date: Shofuso Japanese House and Garden
I work hard and drive results
Along with these business centric roles, I have extensive experience aiding political offices and campaigns - including U.S. Senator Cory Booker, Congresswoman Bonnie-Watson Coleman, N.J. Assemblyman Reed Gusciora, and Philadelphia City Councilwoman Cindy Bass. In these offices, and under the academic tutelage of former P.A. Governor Ed Rendell, I've gained valuable insight into psychographic profiling, targeted messaging, and brand representation. I also run, manage, and promote for my own photography business (that's where this page is hosted if you hadn't noticed).
TLDR: built a brand from scratch, launched restaurant delivery service, acted as brand and social media strategist for multiple organizations. The list goes on here
In my spare time
I spend as much time as I can either behind the wheel (car, motorcycle, or mountain bike) or behind the camera. In either case, I love exploring near and far. Everything I do is with an eye towards curiosity and adventure. This past summer, I volunteered in Nepal, learned how to drive a motorcycle, and traveled through Vietnam and Thailand. Whenever I have a moment, I explore and photograph places off the beaten track, either forgotten or ignored.
I straddle the line between carefully planning, and spontaneously jumping into adventures.
I care deeply about the people in my life. I consider relationships my strongest asset. I have a strong sense of justice.
I love interacting with people. I love listening. I love exploring in a new place and soaking up its ethos.
Here's a collection of photos that expresses my love of adventure, people, Philadelphia, and general zest for the unknown.
