Just a bit about me:
Hi, I’m Jordan and I’m the Web Manager at the Harvard Shop. I’m from a pleasant town in Northern New Jersey called Maplewood. I’m the middle child of there boys — my older brother is graduating Harvard this year with a A.B. in Social Studies and my younger brother just began high school. The “fourth son,” according to my mom, is our big black lab named Milo.
Aside from my family (including the pup) and my girlfriend, the thing I miss most from home are New York Style Bagels — they just don’t make ‘em the same up here. Find me a proper bagel in Boston and I’ll be your best friend!
I’m currently a freshman at the college, living in Straus Haus (Best Haus). I’m undecided about a concentration. I came to college into college thinking I would do biomedical engineering, but now I see myself pursuing Statistics or Computer Science. These paths align with my interest in business!
What I do for Harvard Student Agencies:
What drew me into applying for a position at Harvard Student Agencies (the umbrella organization of The Harvard Shop) was the practical business experience that I would be able to gain on the job. As the head of the Shop's website, I have to make decisions all the time about design, user interface and marketing strategy. I also get the opportunity to incorporate my interests in photography and graphic design by conducting product photoshoots and creating promotional materials for the site. The job is definitely challenging, but also a great time! Outside of the office, I love sports and traveling. I played soccer in high school and I'm a die-hard Yankees and Jets fan (the "wrong" teams in New England). Last summer I took my lifesavings and backpacked around Northern Europe with friends from high school and fell in love with Copenhagen and Amsterdam.
