Jordan is passionate about making the world a better place for our natural environments and those who most depend on them. Hailing from a small agricultural town in Southern Iowa, Jordan holds an undergraduate degree in Environment and Natural Resources from The Ohio State University. He first became interested in international development when he lived in Zambia, Morocco, and Nepal serving a faith-based volunteer organization. He has since volunteered with a refugee resettlement agency and a nonprofit serving inner-city children and youth.
Before coming to Princeton, he served a low-income housing company and at Princeton he completed an internship with Catholic Relief Services on a USAID project to enhance small-holder farmers' access to quality seeds. Jordan loves his wife and three kids, woodworking, cycling, and making everyone laugh at his jests and quips.
