I lean towards slow and spontaneous travel, where I'm able to cultivate meaningful connections and have impactful cultural exchanges. I love exploring the food/drink, art, and nature of places I go!

Hey, I'm Jordan!
I'm originally from Oakland, California although I have been living near Seattle, Washington for the past 3 years to attend university. I got a grant through my university to take sort of a "gap year" from school between January 2022 and September 2022. I plan on traveling within Portugal for the first 3 months, and then hopefully going to Croatia afterwards (and who knows where after that...)!
I'm hoping to develop my photography, videography and interviewing skills during this time, as my ultimate professional goal is to be a multimedia storyteller (for example, creating documentary films or shorter videos that connect people with one another and cultivate empathy/understanding). But more than these professional goals, I am yearning to have impactful experiences that humble and teach me. I want to meet interesting people, explore new places, learn about different ways of life, and gain a better understanding of my place in the world through all of this. I also hope to have fun and share good laughs along the way!
Here are some of the jobs I have worked:
—Camp counselor at an urban farm camp for children ages 3-10
—Babysitter/childcare provider in a group setting for children ages 0-10
—Dog-sitter (my favorite! I would looove to meet some awesome dogs during my travels!)
—Research and writing tutor in my university's library
—General yard helper (painted fence/washed windows/weeded/pruning trees/other miscellaneous work)
—Line cook/waitress at a pizza restaurant
In my free time, I love to draw, cook, practice guitar, do random crafts (like sewing or collaging), hike, be in nature, take photos and videos of the beautiful things and people around me, and spend quality time with friends and family (and animals!). I am open-minded, extremely compassionate/kind, an excellent communicator, patient, friendly, warm, optimistic and cheerful. I can often be found laughing and humming/singing to myself but also appreciate serious discussions and peaceful quietness. In life, I value balance, going with the flow, being present in the current moment, and seeing all living things as precious. My favorite thing is sharing good food and genuine conversation with other curious and creative people! I love learning about others and am an excellent listener ;)
I also am vaxxed + boosted by the way!
