Antoinette Jordan and Mark Snipes make a dynamic duo as business partners and interior designers for Jordan Gray Interiors. While Jordan is a heterosexual female and Snipes is an out and proud gay man, the two complement each other in many ways, they say.
“It’s great working together. We have a lot in common,” Snipes says. And, yes, that includes men, he laughs.
Jordan, who began the company on her own five years ago, befriended Snipes at Joseph A. Bank, where they both currently work. The two have been in business together six months and they hope to eventually make their jobs with Jordan Gray Interiors full-time.
“We met and became friends and I found out he used to have an interior design business in Charlotte, N.C.,” Jordan says.
