Hailing from the Rocky Mountains of Santa Fe, Jordyn's upbringing immersed her in the wonders of the wilderness, igniting her deep love for the outdoors. Armed with a BFA in documentary filmmaking from Chapman University, she embarked on a journey that has led her to produce work around the world.

With an unwavering belief in the transformative power of storytelling, Jordyn Romero continues to breathe life into her stories, amplifying voices that need to be heard and creating a cinematic tapestry that resonates with audiences worldwide.
In her acclaimed film, We Are Like Waves, Jordyn tells the story of one of the first female surfers in Sri Lanka.

Jordyn works primarily as a director and producer in documentary filmmaking, branded content, and commercials. She isn't afraid to get her hands on a camera either - whether submerged in pumping surf or trekking through remote locations with a backpack filled with camera gear and electrolytes.
