It all started as most stories start; an individual who realized that their past times were really their passions. From watching Paul Rodriguez Youtube videos after school to shooting his own film at local Chicago Skateparks, Jordan knew that his creative mind had to be expressed. He first drew inspiration from fellow artists Stephen Vanasco (V/sual Apparel owner) and Phil Shaw (a local Chicago photographer) before finding his own voice.
Through his network in Chicago, he came across Clark St. Collective- a digital marketing agency that gives artists the opportunity to advance their abilities. The members of this agency took on Jordan as a mentee, giving him the tools and resources he needed to constantly be growing his craft. Through the years he had the chance to work with many local artists, sports, fashion, and footwear companies like Finish Line, Puma, Adidas, Modern Notoriety, basketball scouting league, Scout Focus and NBA player Evan Turner’s Turner Foundation. Jordan found a voice for himself as a photographer. Realizing his talents and having a knack for collaboration, the next step in his artistic vision was to release his own magazine.
Social Contract, his latest project, is underway. Collaborating with local artists, this magazine challenges social norms while pushing the boundaries on what “society” accepts. Stay tuned in 2019….
