His acting credits with Black Lab Theatre include Jules in boom, Vince in Our House press secretary Stephen Bellamy in Farragut North, and identical twins Peter and Craig in Dying City. In addition to his work with Black Lab, Jordan has acted in productions on both the Houston and Los Angeles stage.
