A graduate from the Technical Theatre Program at Vancouver Island University, Jordan is a highly skilled multi-disciplinary technician, whose passion lies in audio engineering and design. Also a performer, Jordan is a singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who enjoys playing and producing music here in Kelowna.
