Veteran turned pirate hunter turned author Jordan Wylie is branching out yet again and adding another string to his already impressive bow, by becoming a documentary maker. His time serving with the Kings Royal Hussars in places like Iraq and Afghanistan and as a civilian fighting pirates in Somalia took Jordan around the world where he witnessed first hand how children are devastatingly affected by war and conflict. He decided that he wanted to take on an epic challenge to raise awareness and money for charities that help children who cannot easily access education because of war and conflict.
“There’s something about war and conflict and children that really strikes a chord and pulls on the old heartstrings because for me because children are always the innocent victims of war and conflict. After leaving the Army I wanted to go to some of the places I’d served and worked in and I wanted to give something back and try and inspire some hope to the children that we’d come across.”
Jordan decided to embark on ‘Running Dangerously’, a project that would see him travel to three of the most dangerous countries in the world that he had served in as a soldier or in the private sector.
