Janez Vermeiren early life and education
Janez was born on 21st June 1978 in Cape Town; that would make Janez Vermeiren age 41 years at the moment. His family was very open-minded, and this would come to influence Janez well in future. His parents exposed him to many different cultures through travelling to different areas in Europe and Asia. He attended Camps Bay School for his formal education. After Janez matriculated, he took off to Europe where he backpacked for a year. What an experience!
For his undergraduate studies, he went to his homeland, Belgium. Janez spent one-year taking archaeology. This one-year experience made the handy-man realise he preferred to spend his time pursuing a more hands-on and creative course. This would see him shifting to Interior Design, and that was it. Janez graduated in 2000 and came back to South Africa.
Janez Vermeiren career life
When he returned to the country, he landed his first job as a model, and he ran with the offer. His first ever advert appearance was with Fanta. He has gone forth from there to shoot adverts for over 100 brands, both locally and internationally.
Janez is very all-rounded, and he had a plan. As it is widely said, "You can never stop a man with a plan!" He continued to exert himself and establish his name as a brand in South Africa. He won the Mr/Mrs Clifton Cape Town beach competition in 2001 as well as the Men's Health Look of the year in 2003.
The top model managed to secure the title of Storms top male model for a total of five years. From all his success in modelling, he went on to start his very own modelling agency in 2007, which is called Full Circle Model Management.
That was not the full plan; here is the rest of it. Aside from modelling, Janez has other interests which he cultivated too. Using the money he gathered from modelling jobs and competitions, he channelled it into the buying, renovating and selling of property and putting that degree into good use! This would add "Property Trader" and: "Entrepreneur" to his list of titles.
