Adrienne Janic, ”AJ”, was born and raised in Whittier, CA to ethnically diverse parents. Her mother is from Mexico and her father is from Yugoslavia. That made for some fantastic family dinners ! She was a natural entertainer–acting and dancing on stage from the age of six–and her passion for performing continued throughout junior high and high school.
After graduating, A.J attended Rio Hondo Community College in Whittier, CA, obtaining her degree in communications and theater. During that time A.J. competed in the Ford Supermodel of the World Contest. When she made it to the local division semi-finals she was immediately signed to the FORD modeling agency in Los Angeles. In between semesters she traveled all over Europe, Japan, and South Africa, modeling and doing TV commercials. She has been to Italy, Greece, Spain, Germany, Japan, and her absolute favorite country, South Africa, where she had a once in a lifetime experience – cage diving with Great White Sharks. A.J. has been featured in and graced the covers of numerous magazines, including “Natural Health,” “Item,” “Beverly Hills Magazine,” “Shape,” “Maxim” and “Cosmopolitan.” Her print campaigns include “Fanta,” “Lee Jeans,” “Bausch and Lomb,” “Hewlitt Packard” and “Parallel Clothing.”
