“We have the capacity to change the fundamental ways we produce energy and manufacture goods, yet countless social, political, and economic forces bar the door against a sustainable future.”

With an understanding of the sustainability challenges facing growth in the world economy, Jordan describes himself as a designer and fabricator looking to merge traditional techniques with innovative methods of design and production. His motivation as a designer extends beyond the desire to create objects merely pleasing to the eye; he seeks to use his knowledge and skill as a tool to help shift perceptions. MITidm allows him to hone his ability to build beautiful products with a focused regard for human-centered design, efficiency, and market viability. Jordan graduated from Colby College with a Bachelor of Arts in History of Science and Technology.
