First starting out as a music major studying electronic music and composition, Jordan first started designing websites in the early days of the World Wide Web to connect with other musicians and artists online. 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 leads immersive design at U.Group, working with public sector, nonprofit, and commercial customers to explore real-world applications for how augmented, virtual, and mixed reality can change the way we learn, collaborate, and visualize data about the world around us.
Jordan previously worked in user experience and digital strategy for the Department of Defense and 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 serves as the President of UXPA DC, co-organizer of DCUX, and as a co-chair of the Defense & Intelligence Committee for the VR/AR Association. 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.
