Swiss mister Jan hails from the city of Bern, but was scouted on the other side of the world in Perth, Western Australia. Studying Down Under for 12 months as an exchange student, Jan sent some photos into Vivien’s Model Management and was signed on the spot. Rosy cheeked and boyishly handsome, Jan’s got just a few digitals and a video to his name so far, but that’s enough to tell that he’s got what it takes. Wait and see!
