“Think of him as the Mount Everest of humility.”

So said a Maestro veteran who has worked with Gordon many times. No one disagrees, but several wish they had been the first to capture it so well. We think Maestro is full of giants, so it's a great way to describe a man whose personal goals are focused on being a good husband and father.

Gordon began his career in technical writing and marketing communications followed by a serendipitous detour into TV comedy writing. (His show credits include Amen, A Different World, Family Matters and In Living Color). Gordon learned the principles of instructional design and adult education while teaching creative writing courses at UCLA-Extension. In pursuit of a more stable and fulfilling lifestyle, Gordon leveraged these experiences into his third and final career as an instructional designer who specializes in e-learning. His client list includes companies such as Prentice Hall Publishing, United Airlines, AIG, Toyota, Lexus, and Mercedes-Benz. He was a frequent freelancer for Maestro before joining our staff full time.

Gordon likes “. . . anything that has soul, flavor, integrity, excellence and elegance." His dislikes include incompetence, bigotry, cruelty, willful ignorance and bad coffee. Gordon is also a gifted photographer and prolific blogger.
