a bit about Jordan

What do you do and why do you do it?

I'm a creative director. I can style anything from a home, photographic shoot to personal stylist. I love doing it because I materialize peoples dreams.

What’s the worst job you’ve ever had and why was it so effing bad?

Working in an old school barber shop. It was the worst because I wanted to chat and the boss wanted the client out in 15min. It was funny not the worst. We all laughed about it. I lasted 2 days.

Were you born and raised in Melbourne? If not, where did you grow up and what brought you to Melbourne?

I was born and raised in Melbourne; ran the streets at night since I was 13 years old. I know every back street and cool alley way. These days I prefer the main streets lol. Melbourne is a very cool and diverse city.

What kind of music do you listen to and what kind of music do you absolutely HATE?

I listen to all music and favour the blues and folk music. I love deep house and techno as I'm a 90's chick. I also enjoy ethnic music as I used to be a greek and flamenco dancer. Depends on my mood and the company I'm with.

You’re broken hearted - what tracks does your heartbreak playlist consist of?

If am brokenhearted, there would be a wide variety of music I would listen to. I would probably listen to Jeff Buckley, Led Zeppelin, Mumford and Sons, Vivaldi and Angus and Julia Stone

Name the best TV shows of all time, and what makes them so good?

Family guy because it is so wrong lol

Name some spots in Melbourne that are good for a Tinder date.

The Crown Casino, not because I like it there but there is a lot of camera's and security. If your date is bad you can easily escape heheh

Which public figure would you want to see “roasted”? (every public figure is fair game).

Easy toss up between Putin or Trump. Not that I have a bad opinion of them or any for the matter. I just think it would be funny

Who’s your hero and where in Melbourne would you take them out for a serious hang?

My Hero is Nelson Mandela. I'd take him on a picnic in the Royal Botanical Gardens by the lake and just listen to his stories all day as we watch the swans in the lake and people watch

Where do you buy those fabulous clothes of yours?

The coolest shopping is Chapel St. You can start in one suburb of South Yarra with all the designer and as you walk to the next suburb (same street) you have some really cool vintage boutiques.

What’s the area/ spot in town you’ll never be caught dead in?

I don't really care, I'm flexible and I can enjoy myself in any part of town in Melbourne. Find the good spots and make the most of it.

What’s the thing you LOVE to do in your city that you never get to do?

Theatre. I rarely get to go.

Where do you go in Melbourne for a casual night out?

In town which is 10 min walk from my place, or in my suburb is where all the cool bars and restaurants are.

Where would you go in Melbourne to celebrate some freaking good news?

Crown Casino with all the High Rollers

What’s your choice of transportation in Melbourne and why?

Walking and tram. I love the tram, it's like a slow train so you can people watch and see beautiful Melbourne at a slower pace

What are the Melbourne spots a first-time visitor can’t miss?

NGV (National Gallery of Victoria), Hosier Lane with all the street art and Chapel St. (south Yarra -Windsor)

What are the Melbourne spots tourists should run from screaming?

Not much really. It's pretty safe, just use your common sense. Don't go down dark alley ways and don't walk in abandoned area's after dark. Main streets are fine.

Tomorrow’s your last day in Melbourne. How do you spend it?

Chilling out at Royal Botanical Gardens or if you like to party, go non stop clubbing through the night

What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?

Mykonos because they have beautiful beaches, people, great bars and restaurants and a lot of glamorous places, or you can bum it .
