Hi! I'm Jordan Urbs, a wild gourshanne and soul-sondering, tech-tinkering explorer of consciousness.
Or something like that.
I also happen to be a father, partner, musician, filmmaker, traveler, and producer of the digital arts.
But more than anything, I am a storyteller.
Over the years I've sold my time for money, room or board, dabbled in social entrepreneurship, explored handy (and trendy) new technologies, and even attempted to be a social media person with something to share.
It's great trying to achieve lofty ambitions for the world and all, but deep down, I'm actually living in a dream land.
After college, I started to believe that acquiring "money" in our society required a level of structure, routine, and overall stress greater than I cared to give. I'd rather be playing with worlds.
And that's just what I did for the 2010s and my twenties, finding myself the happiest creating rich environments for complex characters to thrive.
Even if it wasn't a work of fiction, I would continue to dream up new worlds, by placing people and their projects in their own best light.
This website gives you a tease into many of the worlds I cook up.
Lately, my biggest dream is one that I just so happen to share with thousands of others, one that just so happens to be realizing itself after over a decade of innovation: the dream of a Bitcoin standard.
I believe in a world where, thanks to the core values of Bitcoin, humans can thrive creatively and co-exist cooperatively once again and for the first time. This has become the only dream that seems realistic at this stage in the world. After all the years I explored in different ways, there is no faster path to healing for our civilization.
"Fix the money, fix the world."
This website is a place for you to dive into my worlds with me, while also acting as a refuge for my creativity. It works doubly to know that these works are out there for you to experience. I invite you to consume my content and send a little tip if you feel so obliged.
I think art should always be free to consume, so the main things paywalled are convenient bonuses like complete PDFs or full movie streams.
Join Me As I Write
I have a library of unfinished writing projects. I'll be posting them here, chapter by chapter, in hopes that your feedback will motivate me to keep a particular story going.
Oh yeah, updates also come as an email newsletter!
