Jordan Ryan Pedersen

Jordan Ryan Pedersen loves "one last job" movies, hates when people say "it's a mute point", and is ambivalent about "Drake." He has written for Complex, MTV, Bandcamp, and MEL Magazine. He also spent a few years in LA trying to break into film and TV and *raspberry noise* that was a bust. He wrote and produced a short film called Taco Night - YouTube it if you feel like it. He's mostly retired from freelancing to write a book, except when Jeff asks him to do, what's that called, they make movies about it. He lives in Indiana.
