“This is the real secret of life -- to be completely engaged with what you are doing in the here and now. And instead of calling it work, realize it is play.” ― Alan W. Watts
Hi, I'm Jordan!
As a kid, I grew up incredibly shy and spent so much of my time quietly observing others. I also loved to draw and craft things and figure out different uses for recycled objects. I was a sensitive and quiet kid in my own little creative world. If I had an idea about something, I would quietly and methodically figure out a way to bring it to life. I just always had this need to share my ideas visually.
When I was 19, I had a son and I was a single mom. I took a break from school to focus on my son and try to catch my balance after this amazing shift in my life. I also used my spare time to read about philosophy, spirituality, and I taught myself to paint. As he got older, I slowly went back to school, taking one or two classes a semester for a couple years in the things that interested me.
I'm most happy when I'm making things, so I wanted to strengthen this ability to be creative. I chose to study literature, music, dance, and art at Mission College and received an Associate's degree in Creative Arts. I wanted to do my best to use this knowledge and chose to study Graphic Design at San Jose State, and am currently working toward a Bachelor's degree.
I'm just a human that loves art and design.
I hope to create things that make people think about their lives and the choices they make.
