N.Y. Entrepreneurs: The Martino Twins

N.Y. Entrepreneurs: The Martino Twins

New York-based twins Adriana and Marisa Martino are hot entrepreneurial twins who enjoy modeling, just like other twins featured in Citynet Magazine. They’re about to open a spa in the competitive New York City landscape.

Where are you located?
Adriana: We grew up in Orlando which I think is a great place to grow up (Mickey Mouse) and moved to NYC to acomplish our dreams a little over 5 yrs ago.

How did you get into modeling?
Marisa: Well, we actually just stumbled into it. Being an identical twin, companies were always looking for us to do promotional modeling which eventually branched out to print. We started doing shoots for local magazines and different agencies got in touch.

What type of shoot would you love to do?
Marisa:  I think someplace remote with maybe a giraffe would be a fun shoot!
Adriana: I love doing twin inspired photo shoots. I really love being a twin.

What’s your sexiest body part?
Adriana: The sexiest body part on a man to me is shoulders/arms. I don’t like a juicehead, but there has to be substance.
Marisa: The sexiest part of a man is his mouth. You have to make me want to kiss you. Sexiest body part is definitely the chest.

What’s the most common question that people ask you?
Adriana: The most common question being a twin would be ” What’s it like?” My response is always ” I don’t know what it’s like not”.
Marisa: Yes, same answer. The truth is we DO fight but it’s getting less frequent than when we were younger. We would fight over everything including boys!

Are you more of a guy’s girl or a girl’s girl?
Adriana: I would say I’m a guy’s girl with a girl’s girl swagger;)
Marisa: Haha funny answer. I’m more of a girly girl but do like to drink a beer and pretend to be interested in whatever game is on sometimes.

What’s your dream job?
Adriana: My dream job happens to be happening, finally!!! I always envisioned opening up an anti-aging facility in a beautiful brownstone in NY. Being from Florida you don’t see brownstones which are gorgeous. We just started our company called SkinNy which is a MedSpa under an MD’s supervision. We perform all services with state-of-the art technology which provides anti-aging skincare with the use of lasers.

Name one thing you would bring with you if you were stranded on a desserted island.
Marisa: One thing I would bring would be my dog Juju. He provides all sources of entertainment for me.
Adriana: I would bring my Iphone. It has WiFi, ipod and Youtube. I would have picked our little boy Juge but Marisa’s always one up on me 😉

You win the lottery. what do you do with the money?
Marisa: I guess it depends on how much 😉
Adriana: Definitely give back. The devastation in Haiti is beyond belief and I would feel awful under the sun in Monte Carlo. You’re right Marisa, how much??? 🙂

Give us a fun fact about you.
Adriana: I can touch my nose with my tongue.
Marisa: I secretly still want to be a pop star.

Best or worst pick-up line used on you?
Marisa: Best pick up line was from my boyfriend. It was very funny! He asked me for my number and I told him I had a boyfriend (I did at the time) and he says ” Well, I feel bad for your boyfriend then”. Needless to say he got my number!
Adriana: Worst pick up line would be a date I had the other night. There was that awkward silence at dinner and he says (I assume to break the ice) “Umm… sorry I couldn’t focus staring in your eyes”. Then at the end he says “dinner was perfect, just like our date”. You have to laugh. I like funny guys but not that kind of funny.

Tell us at least one thing every man should know.
Adriana: I can think of something.  😉
Marisa: Woman ARE as complicated as promised.

Last time you went skinny dipping?
Marisa: My boyfriend and I just got back from Las Ventanas in Mexico and had an amazing suite with our own private hot tub outside. Maybe a bikini top came off.
Adriana: To be honest, not for a long time. I would like a Mexico moment though!

Name anyone, alive or dead, who you would love to meet.
Marisa: Madonna! I’ve never seen her in concert which is definitely on my to-do list.
Adriana: I know this is most girl’s answer and admit a little cliche but Marilyn. She epitomized sexiness in all forms.

Give a shout out to your fans…
Adriana: Fans?? LOL!
Marisa: Holla!!! 😀

Any big projects coming?
Marisa: Really focused on SkinNy MedSpa. We  want to stay current in this emerging market and hope to keep Park Ave moms looking as ageless as possible!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
Adriana: Hopefully have a vacation home in Italy and a booming company in NY.
Marisa: I see myself opening more Med Spa’s and educating clients on skincare and preventive procedures you can all do.
