His Blackfoot name is Iipisowaahsa (Morning Star). Gordon enjoys reading and writing fictional stories about First Nations people and their traditional and contemporary lives.

He is currently working on a murder mystery novel set to be published in 2021.
Gordon has spent over 35 years working in the field of Social Work as an advocate for Indigenous children, where his leadership has provided opportunities for the next generation of social workers to learn about providing culturally appropriate supports for Indigenous children and families. He is a graduate of Gonzaga University where he completed his Master of Counselling. Writing has been a part of Gordon's healing journey and is part of his wellness practice.
