Omar broke through the glass ceilings for male models 25 years ago when he opened his own agency in Los Angeles and called it Omar's Men. He has a natural eye for talent, and had picked up the tricks of the trade experience as a model himself in the mid-70s on the catwalks of Paris and Milan. This tall, lean, impeccably dressed Panamanian recruited men with personality and presence like Djimon Honsou, Antonio Sabato, Jr. and Tyrese, who moved into movies and the recording industry. In demand from master photographers such as Bruce Weber, Mario Testino, and the late Herb Ritts, Omar has expanded his stable to include new faces like Austin Colt, Chase Mowen and Jose Laguna. Omar has maintained an incredible relationship with editorial magazines like GQ, Esquire, i-D, V Magazine and L'Uomo Vogue and clients like Ralph Lauren, Gucci, Versace, Armani and Dolce & Gabbana. In 2013 he launches his first exec produce film "Things Never Said" as well as several TV projects under his JustOmar Brand.
