Call him energetic, focused or charismatic- all would be correct. But, don't label him a millennial because he broke the mold.
His name is Jordan Anthony Swain and in the 11 months since arriving in California he has modeled for over 30 photographers, made three nation-wide modeling tours, appeared in 5 galleries nationwide, one exhibit recently opening in Amsterdam and, has been the exclusive model in a new book.
He says, "It's all about marketing yourself, networking and being available to seize opportunities that may come along only once in a lifetime." Swain adds, "it also helps to have a positive attitude and an extra helping of confidence and personality."
If that were not enough, he frequently departs from his abode in Santa Monica for modeling assignments, in New York City, San Francisco, Miami, and Dallas.
Upon graduating from Cambridge Rindge and Latin High School in Cambridge, MA in 2009, Swain was set to pursue a career in medicine and had worked at three local hospitals simultaneously as a Patient Care Attendant. Call it an epiphany or just a gut instinct, but weeks before registration deadlines, he made a major decision to pursue a career in acting and modeling, thus leaving behind a hefty scholarship to his top choice school.
This required immediate relocation to Los Angeles where he began a targeted networking campaign of re-imaging himself for a new and highly competitive industry.
He packed up a few earthly possessions, caught a red-eye special from Boston and landed in Los Angeles for what he hoped would be the promised land of opportunity.
The first two months were rough as he had also left behind a 6 member family in Cambridge. Finding a new place to call home was not easy with limited resources and references; in addition to the fact that he knew nobody when moving.
Swain is an active member of AFTRA Union (American Federation of Television and Radio Artists) and finds time to volunteer at various organizations throughout the Greater Los Angeles Area. He also serves as a national educational speaker developing curriculum for Boys and Girls clubs and local high schools and holding motivational seminars for youth. This platform enables him to serve as a role model to local area students and community organizations.
Among his recent projects was a month trip to Hawaii where he worked as a featured model completing 34 different concepts for photographer Roger E. Stillman in a just released 120 page coffee-table photography book titled "Reflections of Hawaii." The book is available at blurb.com and through Amazon.
He's accomplished all this at the young age of 19.
