Hey, I'm Jordan!

Los Angeles, California

I'm a filmmaker, serial entrepreneur, author, and artist with strong leadership skills and a commitment to inspiring success in others. I have won awards for my two short films, 875 and Bob White Monday, and am excited to direct Good Guys With Guns, in Albuquerque, NM, at the end of September, 2016.

 

In the early ’90s, I was a co-founder of the award-winning Off-Broadway theater company, The Greenwich House Theater Company in The West Village of NYC, whose members included (the late) Academy Award-Winning Kim Hunter and Ellen Barkin.

 

My book, Behind the Lines: What it Really Takes to Make it as an Actor, featuring interviews with some of Hollywood’s top professionals, has been helping actors navigate the complex and delicate balance between art and business for several years, and the second edition is due out in early 2017.

 

 

I have personally been menotred by my dear friend, (the late) Mike Nichols for many years, but 

for the last few years, I have been an independent business consultant and career coach for entertainment professionals. I recently gave a talk on Social Media Marketing at the Directors Guild of America for Emmy-nominated directors.

 

However, and I'm fortunate to now be able to dedicate more time to my first love, filmmaking. This project wil be the first of many more to come, and I'm excited by this journey.
