I am a 2008 graduate of the Art Institute of Seattle (Bachelor of Fine Arts) developing creative design.
"Jordan is a very talented graphic designer, with a great work ethic and a desire to help drive the companies he works for forward to achieve better success. He was willing to jump in and lean how to run new machines outside of his department and skill set to help keep our company running smooth. He is a great team player, and hard worker. I would highly recommend Jordan to anyone who is looking for a creatively talented, dedicated employee."

When I was growing up in Edgewood, Washington, I had dedication to finding a route to designing shoes for Nike. I would sketch ideas for my friends involved in school basketball, along with shoe designs that were out at the time.
At 20, in 2004, I worked with friends on a band from Tacoma, called Mono In Vcf. We lived in a vintage 70's rambler house together that is now long gone. We achieved a demo deal with Sony/Columbia, based on the strength of a four-song EP in May 2005, which singer/songwriter Charles Perales titled The Voltage Control EP.
The EP had a charting amount of radio play on Seattle's KEXP-FM, which led us to work with a local music lawyer. He lined us up to find success in the exact way that MGMT evolved at that same time on the other side of the country, based on one EP, by joining Red Ink and Sony/Columbia.
I have since had many exciting experiences in graphics, and been able to learn many applications for creating something new.
