“What is the

Birch Effect?”

Born and raised in Toronto, Canada, Jorden Birch is a multi-faceted talent who blends his love of performance along with his love of storytelling.

Growing up, Jorden could always be found dancing and putting on performances for family or making up his own stories or poems and giving them as personal gifts. Despite a constant wonder with the world of arts, sports were always at the forefront of his life. Before beginning his journey as an actor, Jorden successfully pursued his goal of being an NCAA athlete as football took him to Lincoln U of Missouri and ultimately Simon Fraser University.

With football taking him to another country and then ultimately another coast, Jorden continued his studies in Creative Writing and Performing Arts. A childhood joy now lives in the way he embraces the challenge of building characters and developing as an actor. When he’s not performing or hosting parties, he’s often catching up on reading or various television series. Jorden has appeared on TV shows such as Lucifer and Once Upon A Time. Currently the range of this talent can be seen as he makes his debut in theatre as writer and director of the play “Branches”.
