CSI: Miami, one of televisions top-rated shows features IMTA alum Joel West guest-starring as Officer Aaron Jessop. He is credited as part of the cast and has appeared in the last five episodes!
You may remember Joel West from his modeling days. He set records for the single most lucrative deal for a male model with his million dollar contract with Calvin Klein in the nineties. He was in magazines, on billboards, point of sale materials and on television in commercials with other supermodels, including Milla Jovovich.
Joel got his start in modeling at IMTA Los Angeles in 1994 where he won several top awards and Model of the Year for his division. He signed with Boss Models...and the rest is modeling (and now acting!) history!
