"I may not be a familiar face to all of you now, but very soon I will be. Television commercials, print ads, internet ads, you name it, my face will grace all of those soon."

- Joseph Vincent Jimenez

This is how the 21-year old Filipino college student and aspiring model Joseph Vincent Jimenez confidently relates to us how he sees himself in the modeling industry a few months from now. To date, Joseph has done several test photoshoots for well-known photographers but he is still waiting for that one big break to gain some foothold in the industry. He knows that all he needs is that one big project to get recognized; afterwards, he is certain that more offers will fall in his lap once the casters see how hardworking he is.

Apart from modeling, he is also open to joining showbiz. He believes his Asian/Filipino look and good acting chops would cater to many roles in television shows and movies.

Update: Joseph is featured in the February 2013 issue of Garage Magazine.  He will also be featured in the summer issues of two more magazines, watch out for those!

24-year old Nichola "Niko" Siles is a model of Filipino and French descent. He grew up in the Philippines but decided to finish his college education at the LaSalle College in Montreal, Canada where he earned a degree in Fashion Merchandising.  He moved back to Manila recently to help in the family business.

When Niko was younger, he was asked several times to try modeling out but he declined as it was not his interest.  Upon his return to Manila, he gave modeling a shot and he was gladly welcomed by the industry.  To date, he has appeared in the Bench Universe Denim and Underwear Show, the Cosmopolitan Bachelor Bash 2012 and the launch of the Globe Tattoo Black wi-fi stick.  He is also featured in a few print ads which will be released in a few months' time.

Despite having modeled for well-known Philippine brands, Niko still considers himself a newbie and is bent on getting more exposure and expanding his portfolio. Apart from modeling, his interests include music, fitness, travelling, extreme sports, martial arts and animal welfare.
