Talented Jainmy Isabel Martinez was born June 6th, 1977, in Santo Domingo, The Dominican Republic. She grew up in the historic capital city under the guiding hands of her mother, grandmother and two aunts, in a traditional Catholic home that emphasized morality, family values and kindness toward all people. The loving environment of her youth has served Jainmy well, remaining the foundation of her adult life – as a strong, spiritual woman and proud mother of two beautiful girls.
At a young age, Jainmy’s thoughts were focused on becoming an entertainer as she watched the American stars of movies and television. As a teenager, Ms. Martinez attended the country’s highly-regarded acting and modeling schools, graduating with several honors. She was also a student at Catholic University of Santo Domingo (Universidad Catolica de Santo Domingo). She studied dance, chiefly jazz, at the prestigious Ritmos Espacio de Danza, ultimately mastering several styles, including salsa and merengue.
Jainmy experienced success at an early age, landing runway and print modeling assignments, in addition to television commercial work. Along with modeling in national magazines like OH! and Isabella, and representing one of the nation’s largest department stores, she won co-starring roles in two Dominican mini-series, “Al Filo de la Vida” and “Las Mil Caras del Engano.” She was well on her way to becoming a household name in her Caribbean homeland.
Most models and actresses would have been satisfied with the many accomplishments Jainmy could claim at a very young age, but not her. She took the daring, but calculated, step of advancing her career, and relocated to the United States. As soon as she arrived in America in 2004, her future grew even brighter. With her modeling and acting successes on her already impressive resume, she began finding full-time work as an agency model in New York City, representing diverse array of clients. Since arriving in the U.S., she has also modeled for Oprah Magazine and Latina Magazine. This in-demand beauty stayed busy not only working, but also as a student at the famed New York Film Academy.
Combining her television and modeling experience, and knowledge gained as an astute NYFA student, Jainmy Martinez developed that special on-screen mix few actresses do – sexy and smart. New York City was proving to be just the place for her as she began appearing in independent films, television, commercials and web shows, including A&E’s Watching The Detectives, The Onion News and VH1′s Viva Hollywood (where she filmed the now infamous “death scene”) and was part of the show's cast next to stars like Maria Conchita Alonso and Sofia Vergara.
Jainmy recently landed one of the lead actress’ roles in the independent feature film, “A Playa’s Web.” A sexy, well-plotted drama, the film suits her acting abilities perfectly. More projects like this, that let her play to her strengths as an actress – intelligent, seductive and intense – are definitely in Jainmy’s immediate future.
In October, 2010, Jainmy was inspired to follow God’s direction and make the inevitable, adventurous move to Los Angeles. Drawing on her long-time contemporary inspirations Charlize Theron and Hilary Swank, Jainmy’s primary focus is always acting, though she also took on the challenge of starting her own clothing business, the attention-getting WWW.MYSEXYSTYLES.COM Amazing business woman that she is, her new venture is prosperous and growing daily.
Through sacrifice, ambition and faith, attractive Jainmy Martinez – actress, model, dancer and businesswoman – has become one of New York’s and Hollywood’s rising stars.
