Meet your caring content creator.

Hi, my name is Jordan. I'm a teacher-at-heart and a writing nerd. I've guided thousands of students in the K-12 space to grow a love of creating and publishing original work. Plus, I've mentored and trained adults throughout my career. As a content marketer and writer, I've had the privilege of working with a variety of clients and sectors: SaaS, tech startup, small business, local sports, and B2C. Most importantly, I care about what I do. I enjoy collaborating and meeting needs.

2019: Started HopsWrites, my Content Writing business

In a loving nod to my students who like to call me "Mr. Hops," I start my content writing career under the name "HopsWrites.". My first client wanted short-form sports reporting. From there, I wrote for startups, SaaS, and tech. I've since strategized and created content for a variety of marketing channels.

2020: Content Writer & Manager for a tech company

One of clients wants to pull me in for full-time content marketing. At the time, the pandemic forced me into a leave-of-absence from teaching, so I dive in! I guide the brand through marketing narrative strategy, write copy for all channels, and oversee SEO and conversions.

2021 & beyond: My next steps as a learning designer and content creator

Though I return to the classroom to finish the year with my students, 2021 showed me I have a passion to create and to guide learners. I've since been developing my instructional design and adult learning skills. I'm looking to transition from the classroom into a full-time content marketing or learning design role with a company on a mission!
