So I finally caved in and made a user page. Here it is. My name is Jordan, I'm 23, and I'm native to Durham, North Carolina. Personally, of course, I think Durham, NC, should be the default entry for "Durham" (or at least a disambiguation page). But I'm not out campaigning for it, beating a dead horse.

I have a BA with majors in American Studies and Linguistics and minors in Spanish and English.

I'm married to Ryan and we have a little baby boy, Hayden, born in Feb 06. He's cute, if I do say so myself. I'm an Internet Marketing Consultant. I'm also a contributor at Marketing Pilgrim Internet Marketing Blog.

Mostly, I edit spelling, grammar, punctuation, formatting, etc.

There. Now my name isn't red anymore.
