I graduated from Seymour College in 2011, after which began studying Bachelor of Civil Engineering and a Bachelor of Business Management at RMIT. In my final year, as part of my Honours program, I had the opportunity to experiment and investigate timber-concrete composite structures. During my studies, I worked as an undergraduate engineer at BMD Constructions, a civil infrastructure firm, gaining first-hand experience in the field and helping deliver projects such as the Victorian International Container Terminal and the Caroline Springs Railway Station. Having recently completed my degree, I will soon begin working as a graduate engineer at BMD Constructions. My schooling at Seymour College provided me with the crucial foundation required to build upon over the 5 years of higher education.
After graduating Seymour College in 2015 I underwent a gap year for a break and preparation for university. During this year the primary focus was work which entailed lifeguarding at the indoor/outdoor pools across the district and at events. When not there I was working another job at a local petrol station. This work experience was great but during the year I decided on a different life experience being a trip to Europe with a mate, teaching me all sorts of things that were beneficial to helping my growth and learning about independence. This gap year was also capped off by a life changing leadership course called RYLA(Rotary Youth Leadership Award) sponsored through the local Rotary club which inspired me and had me eagerly awaiting university. I strongly recommend a gap year as these experiences not only got me ready for university but also will help me for many, many years to come.
I am currently doing a Bachelor of Science at the University of Melbourne and enjoying it thoroughly. I had no idea going in what area of science I wanted (enjoyed so many of them) so this general starting point was perfect for me. I have now decided on majoring in Physics.
After attending Seymour Primary School and Seymour Tech High, until the end of 2010. Jordan transferred to the very new John Monash Science School in Melbourne, to enhance his love of Science, for his final 3 years of school.
After completing his VCE at JMSS, Jordan studied a Batchelor of Bioscience at Latrobe University Melbourne, majoring in Zoology & Ecology. To put himself through University Jordan worked in hospitality as a Corporate Box Steward at Etihad Stadium and the MCG and as a Lifeguard at Avenel & Nagambie pools.
After graduating from Uni, with not many jobs on offer, Jordan started an apprenticeship as an Arborist with Cutting Edge Tree Services in Mount Waverley to further upskill himself for future employment.
On weekends Jordan works for Aussie Wildlife Displays, doing presentations of some of Australia’s most loved and feared animals for people of all ages in and around Melbourne. This really suits his love of animals big and small.
