My self-summary
My name is Jordan.
I studied French in college.
I like playing computer games, watching movies with friends, and riding my bike through the city.

Last year I quit both of my jobs in Oklahoma and moved to Chicago to get into the mobile development scene here. The majority of my time is spent at coffee shops *mostly Star Lounge* working on side projects or trying to learn a new development language.

Aside from coffee shops you might find me at Headquarters or Emporium playing pinball, Empty Bottle or Bottom Lounge watching a show, or wandering the streets of Chicago with my camera pretending that I know what I'm doing.

"To do is to be" - Nietzsche
"To be is to do" - Kant
"Do be do be do" - Sinatra

Most pictures of me contain animals. I'm not really sure why.

What I’m doing with my life
Staying up too late reading or watching shows on netflix.
Leaving my apartment, forgetting why I left, and then riding my bike for a few hours aimlessly through the city.
Working towards becoming a software developer for a mobile development company in Chicago.
I’m really good at
Table tennis.
Doing dishes and vacuuming.
Sending really awkward messages that only I think are funny.
The first things people usually notice about me
I have very large eyebrows.

I spend a lot of time thinking about
How sexy elbows and ankles are.
How I would be able to make day to day tasks seem so much more epic if I had taken ballet when i was younger.
Whether or not I should join a Crossfit gym.
On a typical Friday night I am
Working in Pilsen and then going on a night time bike ride through the city.

The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I've always loved Audrey Hepburn. I used to have posters of her up in my room, and I owned all of her movies on dvd. I still love Audrey btw. If you want to watch My Fair Lady with me, let me know.
Oh, and I sing and dance around my apartment all the time. It's fun, you should try it.
You should message me if
You want to get coffee.
You want to brush up on your French.
You want to help me build an Android app.
You can show me some hidden gems in the city.
You want to play tennis with someone that knows how to keep score.
You want to get together and paint something and don't mind that I don't really have much talent at painting.
You have some thin mint cookies and want to share. Because, seriously, they're thin I need to explain this?

You want a new friend. I would love to have more people to hang out with in the city.

Thanks for checking me out! Here is a picture of an adorable little animal. If my profile didn't pique your interest, no worries! Happy hunting out there :)
