Jordan Waller

Sabotaging since 2 Feb 2011

Jordan Waller is a bearded freelance journalist and Yorkshireman that collects vinyl records and embarrassing moments. A skinny short-sighted former child magician he’s often described as looking ‘a bit French.’ He’s written for Esquire, FHM and Empire and is Agent2 Magazine’s music editor-at-large. Broadcaster Jon Snow once clutched his shoulder and said, “Are we alright baby?” To date, this was the greatest single moment of his life. He spends most of his time thinking about, but never actually doing, stand-up comedy. You can read his blog at www.jordanwaller.tumblr.com and follow him on twitter @jordanwaller.
