”The refining pot is for silver and the furnace for gold, and a man is valued by what others say of him” -- Solomon


About Me

An accomplished fashion & commercial model and actor, John Strand was born near the waves of Monterey, grew up on the front range around Denver, and is currently based in Los Angeles, California. After years of developing his skills and a striking portfolio of print, runway, and commercial film work, as well as recording and performing original music with an indie rock band in both Denver and Portland, John has come to the western epicenter of the fashion and entertainment world.

Intent on establishing a vibrant career in fashion and film, John brings an unmatched work ethic, rarely seen integrity and dependability, and a passionate and creative spirit to every project he is a part of. He is available for assignment locally in Los Angeles, and worldwide.
