SANTA MONICA, CA — Christjan Jordan has joined bicoastal Union Editorial (www.unioneditorial.com) as partner and editor. His credits include work for Amazon (Lucky Generals) and Madden NFL (

“I love the craft, creativity and challenge of editing,” he explains. “I like starting from the initial idea and working with every moment that’s been filmed, coming up with the best piece possible.” “Christjan is a unique talent whose work stands on its own as some of the best our industry has to offer,” notes Union president/managing partner Michael Raimondi. “His dedication to his craft and desire to do great work drew us to him immediately. We knew from the minute we met Christjan that we wanted him as our partner. He shares our vision of the future and we are thrilled to start the next chapter at Union with him as a collaborator. He’s also a great guy who fits right into our family, and that's important to us.”
