Biography

My name is Jordan. I've been writing since before 10 years of age. I remember when length seemed to be the most important part of a story to me.

I've studied structure, symbols and specifically surrealist plots which should show in all my written work. I draw from artists such as Phillip K.

I focus also on sociology or group dynamics & behavior

I started writing when I was 7 or 8. My first story was a Mario fanfic
