Hey, I'm Jordan.
I'm an entrepreneur with a passion for web tech. I am a co-founder of three Dartmouth-based companies:
- Web-everything company, Websavers
- Lemonade stand and taco shack, Lemon Dogs
- Coworking space, Shftwork
I'm actively involved in the day-to-day operations of Websavers alongside my partner Allen; from server and network administration to WordPress troubleshooting to a bit of our own web development.
My partner Krista now runs everything at Lemon Dogs; I help whenever possible.
While I handle Shftwork's web presence and bookings service, the incredible folks over at Trainyard General Store provide the space and help to promote it. The credit for much of the initial planning for Shftwork goes to my good friend Nathan, who has a background in office space planning and design.
I like good food. I try to spend my money at locally owned businesses. I love sci-fi movies, tv shows, and books (Trek all the way).
I'm an Apple fan, more for the awesome Apple software developers than Apple's own stuff these days.
WordPress.org, none of those proprietary website builders. In a world where control over physical assets is often fairly limited, I strongly believe everyone should have 100% control over their web property.
I like contributing code. I often find wonderful software that simply needs a few tweaks to fix some bugs, improve behaviour, or add new functionality; so I fix it! Then send it back to the developer to include in official releases :)
I have previously worked in computer repair for over a decade, handled network systems admin for non-profits, law firms, and universities, and provided web software development consulting and project management for startups (other than my own).
