Jordan has been designing websites and digital experiences since the early days of the World Wide Web. Inspired and excited by the potential for people to connect with each other around the world, Jordan went to work as a web designer helping people realize the potential of the web as a new medium for entertainment, education, and business.

Today Jordan is a Lead Human-Centered Engineer at MITRE, bringing experience in human-centered design and UX strategy and research to creating innovative solutions for national defense, health, and other public sector sponsors. Previously he lead immersive design at U.Group, working with the public sector, nonprofit, and commercial customers to explore how emerging technologies like AR/VR, AI, and machine learning can change the way we learn, collaborate, and visualize data about the world around us.
Before that Jordan worked in user experience and digital strategy for the Department of Defense and the United States Senate. At the United States Senate, he helped senators and committees unlock the potential of their websites and social media channels to better engage and communicate with constituents.

An active member of the design and XR community, Jordan has served as the President of UXPA DC, co-organizer of DCUX, and a member of the W3C Immersive Web Working Group. Jordan holds a BIS in Interaction Design from George Mason University and an MS in Management of Information Technology from the University of Virginia’s McIntire School of Commerce.
