About Jordan 

As a first-generation college student from Baltimore, MD, Jordan was fascinated by the enterprise that is higher education, having to hold the beautiful, transformative potential of higher learning with the capitalistic and exclusionary nature of these institutions.


It was his high school and college educators - mostly the love and labor of Black women - that identified Jordan's passion for helping schools reach their potential in supporting the success of all students. They mentored him toward a path in educational development and organizational change, work that Jordan does now with students, school leaders, and professionals in business and policy.

Jordan understands the challenges that today’s young people face: financial insecurity, social media identity, job loss, and harms to their mental wellness, to name a few. Jordan takes a fresh perspective on addressing these challenges. His youthfulness and relatability, coupled with his diverse experiences and design-oriented approach to speaking inspires his audiences to shift paradigms.

His combined expertise in learning design and public speaking makes him the best suited candidate for any engagement you're planning. He caters messages to audiences that leave them talking to each other about what they learned and what they can do collectively to overcome the challenges they're facing.


Along with being a TEDx speaker, entrepreneur, and instructor at Georgetown University, he's also accumulated hundreds of hours in volunteer work. Whether he’s giving a free public speaking workshop for incarcerated individuals pursuing their bachelor’s degree, or recording a personalized video for middle school students who used his strategies to improve their academic performance, JD consistently finds ways to give back.  


Jordan has a B.A. in Communication from McDaniel College, is a Project Coordinator at the Center for New Designs in Learning & Scholarship at Georgetown University, and is currently an M.A. candidate in Georgetown's Learning, Design, and Technology program.
