Aaron Michael Castillo was born and raised in Stockton, CA, a city just east of San Fransisco. Aaron and his younger brother, Jordan Jurado, 18 were raised by his mother Renee Jurado. He was blessed with a beautiful sister Madison Chervony, 8, after his mother remarried to his stepfather Stepehen Chervony in 2000.
He was determined to leave Stockton after high school in search of bigger and better opportunities. So 4 days after graduation he moved out to Los Angeles, CA alone, started working in a bakery and attending a junior college full-time. He attended school for 2½ years while working full-time as a retail salesman at a cell phone store, T-Mobile. It was there in North Hollywood, CA where he was introduced to the modelling industry. In September 2007, he began working as a server at a Mexican restaurant while in search of an agent. In July 2008 he met his manager Billy Clark, who’s also the manager of singer/actress, Christina Milian and teen actress/singer Keke Palmer.
In August 2008, he then signed to his Los Angeles Agency, Nous Model Management. In September 2008, he took his first international trip to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia with Faces Models. There he worked numerous jobs such as print, runway and campaigns for brands such as Gucci, Soda, Maxim Magazine and more. He returned to Los Angeles in February 2009 after 4 months in KL. He worked in LA until May 2009 when he signed to an agency in Istanbul, Turkey. June 5, 2009 was when he made the move to Istanbul and he is now currently working there with Erberk Models.
He believes that he is very blessed to have this opportunity to model both in the States and internationally. He also revealed that he’s a very ambitious and determined person who always strives for more. His ultimate goal is to get into the acting industry.
Michael Nguyen was born and raised in California. He apparently still laughs at the notion that *anyone *considers him a “model” because he said that he’s actually more of a geek than anything else. He has a love for art, movies, comic books, mom-and-pop restaurants, video games, and professional wrestling and he would actually prefer a night in as opposed to a hot night out on the town. He studied at the theatre arts at the Claire Trevor School of the Arts down at UCI (the University of California, Irvine) and even launched a personal website/blog for his art. After graduating in 2006, he immediately continued to pursue his aspirations and attended a scouting event where he was discovered and signed with an agent, who is now currently representing him as both a model and an actor. He got his first taste of the modelling biz when he first modelled for a friend’s thesis-fashion show down in Long Beach, California, whilst he was still studying in undergrad and the rest you can say is history. He plans to continue muscling my way through audition after audition, be it as a model or an actor because he believes that both fields go hand-in-hand and complement each other, so he plans to utilize what he has learnt from both experiences to develop an overall better self, both as an important figure in the entertainment business and as a proud and respected person outside of the industry. He believes that as long as he stays true to his values and is diligent and patient, rewards of all shapes and sizes will come his way. Wherever the road may take him, be it as a renowned actor or a famous model or a street artist, he still plans to still do everything to the best of his ability and to never compromise the purpose of art.

It was there later that he ended up meeting a talent and model scout and that’s how it all started for him.
