Education

2007 – 2012

Northern Arizona University

BA Visual Communication Class of 2012

Studying in the northern mountainous region of Arizona that it probably stole from Colorado was a welcome break from blistering heat and the perfect chance to see what this “snow” business was all about. I started in Computer Science before switching to Visual Communication when I discovered how much I love design.

Those two years of programming paid off when I took a cross-disciplinary game design class where design majors were paired up with CS majors. With that experience I was able to communicate with my teammates more effectively. That was what solidified my love of game design and working with people from other disciplines to make something great.

Testimonials

Alex BussaManager, User Experience Design at Pearson

Over the past several years, I have had the opportunity to both work along side Jordan and help him shape his career. It is rare that you come across a standout talent who is also a pleasure to work with. One of Jordan’s qualities that I admire is his ability to establish strong collaborative relationships with cross-discipline teams, such as product management, architecture and development. These relationships provide Jordan with a solid foundation that supports his ability to take a feature from initial concept, carry it through the entire design process and deliver a solid solution that not only meets the original request, but also illuminates and delivers upon what the stakeholder really needs. Jordan has become an indispensable part of my team at Pearson and would be an asset to any team.

Kristin MorrisonVP of Design and User Experience at K12

I hired Jordan from Northern Arizona University on the recommendation of one of my former professors. I was not disappointed. Jordan is an extremely capable UX professional who has experience with wireframes, visual design, usability testing and coding his own prototypes. His attitude and communication style make him easy to work with. He’s dependable, thoughtful, and proactive in every project and task he’s given. If Jordan doesn’t know how to achieve something he will find a way and figure it out. Jordan is continually concerned for the user and ensuring the choices he and teammates make support their needs. Managing him for 3 years was one of my biggest joys as a manager. Jordan has tremendous potential and takes every opportunity seriously.
