A beautiful and affluent suburb of Seattle, often considered one of the top places to live in America, is truly a hidden gem in the lush Pacific Northwest.
Home to companies such as Expedia, T-Mobile, video game developers such as Valve—makers of Half-Life and Counter-Strike and Bungle—who make a certain world-renowned FPS called Halo—with Microsoft and Nintendo of America down the road in neighboring Redmond, some could consider Bellevue a mini-“Silicon Valley of the North”.
Other notable companies within the city include 5th Cell, Eddie Bauer, InfoSpace, Intellectual Ventures and Esterline, have helped Bellevue the third-largest city in the state of Washington.
Called the “City of Glass” due to the number of sky scrapers, the town of 120,000-plus sits on the eastern side of scenic Lake Washington with breath-taking vistas of Puget Sound, show why the town’s name is French for “beautiful view”
Fittingly, one of it’s own in glamour and pin-up model, Jeannie Martin, provides a beautiful view worthy of her hometown’s namesake.
Martin, a 5’7 30-year-old native of Bellevue, has a set of head-turning curves men would die for, with a body and figure worthy of Venus.
A published model who has appeared in Darkslide Mag, 86 Blvd mag, Aspiring Model mag and most recently GRL mag, Martin has dreams of posing for the likes such as Victoria’s Secret, Playboy, Sports Illustrated, Vogue, GQ and Maxim.
Big dreams for a woman from a big city.
Thanks to an impressive portfolio already, who unabashedly loves showing off her God-given shape, Martin is all about showing what she’s go and being unapologetic about it.
As with all residents in the Pacific Northwest, Martin is a die-hard fan of her hometown Seattle Seahawks.
