Gordon, an electronics engineer by trade, learned magic from a coin-magic book in 1940. He began performing professionally as a mentalist in the 1950s.
He was the founder of the Ontario Skeptics and a member of Skeptics Canada. He was also a fellow of the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry (CSI). He was well known for his exposures of psychics such as Uri Geller and Shirley Maclaine.
For two years Gordon wrote the debunking column "Extrasensory Deception" for the Toronto Sun.  Gordon also wrote the column "It's Magic", along with many feature articles on magicians, for the "Toronto Star" newspaper. Many of his columns were published in his book Extrasensory Deception: ESP, Psychics, Shirley MacLaine, Ghosts, UFOs (Macmillan of Canada, 1988).
