Jordan grew up in a family filled with artists, with his middle name Dalhart paying homage to his grandmother’s favorite artist Dalhart Windberg. Ironically enough, he thought his destiny involved becoming an engineer and working for NASA some day. After high school he moved from Houston to Fort Worth to attend TCU, where he pursued a degree in History while minoring in Italian. His career ambitions shifted to becoming a lawyer, as he had his sights set on practicing international law. After deciding that law could wait, he moved into the digital marketing world after graduation, where he gained valuable career experience. Despite his chosen career path, his true passions revolved around art in any form and he knew he wanted to eventually pursue that calling. That passion became even more apparent after moving to Austin and integrating himself in multiple artistic outlets. It was through this that he found Metropolitan Gallery, where he now has the opportunity to combine his experiences with his passion for art.

IF YOU WEREN’T IN THE ART INDUSTRY, WHAT WOULD YOU BE DOING NOW? 

Besides playing on the PGA tour, I would likely be working in the marketing realm and looking to go back to school for a business degree.


WHAT BROUGHT YOU TO AUSTIN?

Somehow I always knew I’d end up in Austin, but it took me a long time to get here. After college, I lived and worked in Fort Worth for about two years, before deciding I wanted a change of scenery. It just so happened a former colleague and good friend of mine lived in Austin and offered up his futon, I haven’t looked back since. I’ve now been living in Austin for over two years and loving every minute of this crazy oasis in the heart of Texas. 


WHAT INSPIRES YOU?

I think what inspires me the most is being around people who are passionate about what they’re doing in life. When you surround yourself with people who are pursuing their dreams, your dreams become that much more attainable…sounds cliché, but it’s true.


FIVE THINGS YOU CAN'T LIVE WITHOUT:

First off cheese…doesn’t matter what kind, there’s no way I could make it through life without the stuff. Something else I couldn’t live without is my guitar, for those who play you understand there’s nothing better than the sound of a freshly tuned guitar. I would be remiss if I didn’t mention my alma mater TCU; there are few things better than seeing a football game at Amon G. Carter stadium. What continually drives me and is a vital part of who I am is my creativity, without it my life wouldn’t be what it is today. But most importantly, life wouldn’t be worthwhile without my loving, crazy, and supportive family and friends.
