Gordon is a documentary filmmaker, explorer, and hiker. Growing up in Oklahoma, starting at the age of 6, his grandparents would bring him to Rocky Mountain National Park in the summers. This is where his passion for hiking began. His goal was to climb Long’s Peak, a fourteener and the tallest mountain in Rocky Mountain National Park. As a child, he had heard you needed to be a rock climber to get up Longs Peak, so living in Tulsa, OK he started climbing at Chandler Park and did his first lead climbs in the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. He moved to Colorado in 1994 and first hiked up Longs Peak in 1996. 
 
A tradition in his family is to buy a patch (made by Trail Tags) for each hike they have done in RMNP and sew it on a sweatshirt. To date, he has accumulated 84 Trail Tag Patches, hiked several Colorado 14ers and climbed Mt Rainier. 
 
A BFA Film/Video graduate of the Community College of Aurora and University of Colorado at Denver, Gordon is an award-winning documentary filmmaker. Projects he has worked on have won Regional EMMY® awards, Telly awards, Communicator awards, and other awards.  
 
Working as an editor for over a decade, his work includes XFINITY Latino, PBS, Baby Einstein, and many others. He began his career while in college, editing a medical documentary series (which won over 20 national awards).
 

As an aside, he holds the Upasaka Vows.
