My name is James Lorenzo. I am a father, actor, model and entrepreneur. Born and raised in Washington, D.C., I am a former college football player, with a degree in Broadcast Journalism from Penn State. (We Are P.S.U.)
“Being original, is as simple as being yourself” – ME
I’ve been modeling full-time since February 2014. The first agency to give me an opportunity was Wilhelmina (Miami). To be signed with arguably the best modeling agency in the world, especially at my age and experience at the time, was humbling and very exciting. Currently, I am still proud to call Wilhelmina home, as well as Visions in Los Angeles and, Stellar Talent who represent me commercially.
I’ve been able to work with renown clients such as Perry Ellis, Nike, Reebok, Belk, Pro Player, Jack Daniels and Grey Goose. However, my greatest opportunity was given to me on July 5, 2013 when my son, Kekoah Lorenzo was born.
I am a culmination of a journey. A journey that has been rerouted, delayed, cancelled and restarted. Whenever I step out of the house, I can’t “just throw something on” because, I represent my race, my son, my last name and my city. I refuse to be defined by man made settings. I believe we are all creators and my blog represents one of my creations.
My motto “Being original, is as simple as being yourself”, is a lifestyle. And the great thing is it should look different on each person.
