I was born December 27, 1969. I was an average student in school. I enjoyed playing sports, and I participated in volleyball, cheerleading, basketball and ski club.
In high school I got along with everyone – the jocks, the popular kids, the nerds. I wasn’t in a clique.
I’ve always loved performing, as you can probably tell from my movies. One of my first roles in a school play was a munchkin in the Wizard of Oz.
Animals are a passion of mine. I’ve had dogs all my life, and was lucky to grow up in horse country.
I started stripping when I was 18. I enjoyed the dancing part, but I’m not a great hustler, so I went to work for a strip tease company. I loved getting out of the club and into the world, and it was so much less stressful not competing with 50 other girls. It was a completely different environment and a different feeling.
I was the top girl at the strip tease company and was booked solid most of the time. But the boss would do the ol’ bait and switch. He’d tell a customer I would be doing their party, then send someone else, and would tell them that I’d flaked. I’d built a good following, and the customers started calling me and asking what was going on.
So I decided to start my own strip tease company. I brought some of the girls from the other company with me, and hired others as the business got bigger. I enjoyed it for a while, but I got kind of tired of working with flaky girls, and I didn’t want to be a babysitter. That’s why I jumped at the chance to try my hand in Adult.
Getting naked in front of the camera felt very natural from the beginning, but my first sex scene was a little stressful.
I was at Scotty Fox’ house, and my partner was Randy Spears. (I just love Randy!) But before my scene I had a mini panic attack. I remember sitting in the bathroom and looking at the window and thinking, “Could I crawl out?”
Everything was fine as soon as I went out on set. I’d been hanging with the crew all day, so had gotten to know them, and of course Randy was great! I felt super-comfortable, and it opened up another side of my sexuality. I enjoyed the performance, and I enjoyed the feedback from the crew. I could tell they were turned on by my scene and I loved it!
Since then I’ve been happily making X-Rated movies, dancing on the road, and doing signing. I love meeting my fans!
