He attended Georges P Vanier Secondary and subsequently Quest University, in Squamish, where he graduated with a Bachelor of Arts and Science in May 2017.

An avid and talented basketball player, Nessman was a member of his schools’ basketball and rugby teams. Owing to his prowess in the field, he received offers from both The University of The Fraser Valley and Quest University. But he settled for Quest University to pursue his college basket career.

Rise To Stardom
Canadian-born Nessman first drew attention from the public in late 2006 when his friend’s older sister asked if she could take his pictures. The unidentified lady was said to have sent Nessman’s pictures subsequently to local modelling agency – Mode Models International, Canada. After this, he received his first contract worth $15,000 from people who fell in love with his pictures.

Two years later, Nessman’s modelling career got a boost which saw him feature in a print ad for Givenchy and an editorial shoot for Dazed magazine and GQ Italia. Despite finding fame as a teen, he took it upon himself to graduate from high school before venturing into modelling. It was after his graduation that he fully delved into modelling in New York City, where he lived for five years.
