Jordan grew up in Ballarat, Australia. A budding photographer, in his mid-teens he was struck by how documentary films were having an impact on how he saw the world and how he lived his life. Impressed by what an effective medium for change they were, he wanted to get behind the camera and have a positive impact on the lives of others. His first feature film, A Simpler Way: Crisis as Opportunity, co-directed with Samuel Alexander, has received over a million views on YouTube and continues to be shown at community events and festivals around the world. Having teamed up with Antoinette in Happen Films, the pair set out to make a series of short films that ended up becoming a second feature film, Living the Change. He is director, writer and cinematographer, as well as editor of nearly all of the Happen Films productions.
