Jordan was born and raised in Bybee, Tennessee on a 100-acre animal rescue farm. He began playing violin at age 4 and was playing professionally in East Tennessee by the age of 10. After moving to New York City to pursue acting, he graduated from New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts with honors in Theatre. Within weeks of graduation, Jordan was cast as a Blue Man, which he calls “the perfect marriage between acting and music.”

As a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Jordan has been seen playing fiddle, mandolin, guitar, bass, cello, and percussion, bringing an electric style true to his folk roots with a number of rock influences.
In 2014, Jordan joined the cast of the The Walking Dead playing the recurring role of Eric, a scout and tracker in Alexandria. Shooting in Atlanta, The Walking Dead is one of the most-watched shows in Cable-TV history.
Jordan lives in Orlando, Florida with his wife and two beautiful children.
