Juan Salmeri, is not your average good looking 20-year-old from Argentina. He has been playing soccer (fútbol) since he was eight, has traveled through Latin America and Europe, lived in Argentina, Italy, and Spain. He currently resides in Barcelona where he continues training as a professional soccer player.4_Armando+frezze+durand_Doopler+magazine_dooplermag

As if by destiny, during one of those school breaks, he met and befriended the team at Doopler mag, who couldn’t resist his attractive looks and personality, and had him photographed. The pictures landed in an agency, and thanks to Doopler and those first pictures, a chain reaction was set in motion, that turned into a modeling gig and acting opportunities for him.10_Armando+frezze+durand_Doopler+magazine_dooplermag

Dedicated as he is to soccer, Juan has found time and place in his life for the Fine Arts. He enjoys the theater, acting, photography, and, if you are lucky, you will find him singing you a Tango.
