My name is Jordan Robert Schwartz. Welcome! I was born and raised in Rhode Island and am a proud dual citizen of the United States of America and the Italian Republic. I am presently studying creative writing in Providence and will graduate with a bachelor’s degree in Spring 2017. In my free time, I write and hope to have my first novel finished very soon. I used to work for The LEGO Groupas a product designer, and I’m also the author of the book The Art of LEGO Design, published by No Starch Press. You might find my work in other LEGO books here and there as well!

As a personal aside, my favorite genres of music are jazz and ragtime, I keep a small parrot as a pet, I like undercooked game meats, my favorite animal is the Crocuta crocuta (spotted hyena), I have an unusual fascination with EPCOT Center and its unofficial mascot Figment, I collect original Disney props and audio-animatronics costumes, and I try my hardest to wear only collectible vintage clothing from the 20s, 30s and 40s.
