Hello, and welcome to The Ocean Minded Blog (like, open minded). My name is Jordan Turner, and I am the founder of this little slice of internet-paradise. Here’s my story;
Monday through Friday I find myself on the third floor of an office building in the heart of the Silicon Valley in sunny California, working full-time as a Marketing Communications Manager for a fitness and fashion e-commerce company. Believe it or not, social media pays my bills (seriously, how lucky am I?). I am among few 20-somethings who can say with certainty that they love their job day in and day out, and I consider myself very fortunate to have fallen into this industry.
Outside of the office, I am an ocean enthusiast with a love for creative adventures. I am a firm believer that life is better in a bikini, a margarita connoisseur, surfing-amateur, sunset chaser, fashion-addict, retired swimmer and an avid runner.
Still, at 25-years-old I found myself wanting more than just an awesome 9-5 job and less-than-exciting social life. I needed something (anything) to give purpose to my obsession with bikinis, my love for not-so-candid photos, my reoccurring daydreams of the salty water and thirst for travel.
So here we are.
I’m sometimes witty, always sarcastic and never anything but honest. With my passion for writing and self-proclaimed iPhone photography skills, I hope I can inspire like-minded people with tidbits of this swell (get it?) life. After all, life’s a beach.
Join me on this new journey as I dive in to lifestyle blogging on all things borrowed from the sea.
