Garrett Swann

The Sterling Compass


Hi. I’m Garrett Swann, Santa Barbara native, now New Yorker, full-time realist, gym rat, go-getter, and a wannabe millennial.

Obsessed with great convos over coffee, I spend my days inspiring the younger generations with my personal style, poise and panache. A role model (pun intended) and GQ Insider, I travel the world as a model in campaigns for IBM, T-Mobile, Amazon/Oprah Magazine, Brooks Brothers, Allen Edmonds, Michael Kors, Belk, Billionaire (Phillipe Plein), Phonak, Dodge, Chrysler, Loews Hotels, SLH Hotels, Indochino, 2xist Underwear, Mr. Turk, Moscot, among others. Last year, I laughed when I made the “Silverfox” lists for Buzzfeed, Huffpost and OUT Magazine. I’m guessing #daddyisthenewblack. Now that I have that down, I decided to evolve my social media platform to “The Sterling Compass,” circumnavigating the world, giving positive lifestyle direction to those across the globe.

I am also a CEO of an app company called Production Assistant Liaison (paL) in New York City, former star of several TV shows (Fashion House, Unusually Thicke) and questionable indie films (The Casserole Club), and my motto in life is “have swimsuit, will travel.”
