Nigel Sylvester Signs to DNA Model Management
Professional BMX athlete, filmmaker, and creative polymath Nigel Sylvester announces his signing to DNA Model Management today. Merging the worlds of sport, art, fashion, and content creation, the announcement represents the latest milestone in the journey of a boundary-breaking professional athlete.
With a passion for premium design, high-speed lifestyle, and ubiquitous functionality, Sylvester creates the unexpected and crosses cultures. Originally from Queens, New York, he built an unprecedented career in sport and translated it into partnerships with such brands as Nike, Mercedes-Benz and Beats by Dre. Turning professional at the age of 18 without having ever competed in traditional BMX competitions, Nigel instead built his reputation solely off of his progressive riding skills and artistic expression.
A true trailblazer in the world of sport and culture, he translated his iconic approach to BMX and passion for innovative film-making into the adventure travel film series, ‘GO’, which gives viewers a first-hand POV of his rides through some of the world’s most recognizable cities. Today with over 71 million streams, the series captures the essence of each city through Sylvester’s compelling lens.
With his most recent partnership with DNA Model Management, Sylvester continues to redefine the modern-day professional athlete — all while upholding the positivity, conviction, and authenticity for which he is globally recognized.
