Kootra grew up being a pyromaniac after his uncle had bought him some fireworks. Before making videos, Kootra was an assistant greenskeeper at a golf course. Kootra began his YouTube career with Call of Duty 4 machinimas that were viewed on Machinima's main channel. He then continued to make Halo machinimas, such as Warthog Training and Suppressor.
Kootra then got into video editing and graphics, such as lens flares and 3D Modeling. He has been known to make machinimas using the Unreal Development Kit (UDK) which is the develpoment kit for the Unreal Engine. Jordan then got into commentating games such as Left 4 Dead and Modern Warfare 2. He then later got a Machinima Respawn contract. Kootra lives in Colorado. Jordan returned from finishing his secret Machinima project in LA, which ended up being a music video for The Crystal Method.
On August 27, 2014, he and some of the other Creatures were "swatted" by the local SWAT forces while he was streaming Counter Strike on Twitch. He was arrested, but later released without charge, along with the others.
