Originally from Santa Fe, Jordan grew up in the Ventura backcountry in southern California, and spent his childhood playing outdoors. After high school Jordan lived abroad in South America for several years where he spent time managing a farm in the jungle, assisting in rare plant studies, leading rock climbing trips and co-founding a coffee roastery. After some further travels, Jordan returned to the southwest to complete his studies and explore the majestic landscape. Now he calls Arizona home, and hopes to put his broad skills and interests to work, helping protect and preserve the beautiful landscapes of the Grand Canyon state. During his free time, Jordan can be found rock climbing, cooking for his friends, growing veggies or out photographing the beautiful canyons and mountains of the American west.
