As announced at the inaugural Esports Pro Oceania Awards this week, Jordan will be joining the team at Trade Media as Staff Writer, bringing up to date news and analysis across MCV Pacific, Develop Pacific, Esports Pro Oceania and The Influence.
Originally a games design graduate from SAE and a passionate content creator, Jordan has become a familiar and respected face across the industry through his work with the Magnificent Nerds. Through this work Jordan has represented many AAA publishers, hardware manufacturers and first parties through trade and consumer events across Australia and New Zealand.
A champion of the potential for serious games and the role gaming and its associated technologies can bring to society, Jordan played a part in the creation of games like Melobee at this years’ Global Game Jam, and Conversity, a game teaching awareness and tolerance of communicative disorders.
Commenting on his appointment Jordan said; “I’m extremely grateful to Joel, for the opportunity to play a part in the evolution of Trade Media – a platform created to champion and support the many diverse aspects of the industry I love.”
I would personally like to add, “Through the skills and energy Jordan is already bringing to the organization, we look forward to developing the Trade Media family of sites, our social reach and events in a way that mirrors the creativity and blend of entertainment and technology that places the games industry at forefront of innovation.”
Jordan will join Trade Media from Monday, March 19, 2018.
