I was born in Sacramento, CA, and moved to [Los Angeles] when I turned 18 to pursue a career as a porn star. I grew up in North Highlands [a section of Sacramento]. It is a disenfranchised, lower-to-middle-class neighborhood. I never allowed myself to be a negative product of that environment. I used it as a source of inspiration to challenge myself. I began college in August of 2005, balancing school and work seven days a week. Around this time I started thinking about pornography as a career opportunity. I have a huge appetite for sex and self-exploration. I wanted to express my sexuality as a strong woman, to push my own boundaries and see which part of my psyche would take me to my next euphoric sexual experience. I wanted to do all of this in a sex-positive way. Despite the controversy that surrounds this industry, I felt I could ultimately bring an enigmatic quality to it. I decided that if my instinct continued to push me toward the reality of this, and the dissatisfaction with my education continued, I would seize the opportunity on my own. I began my research that month, making my decision absolute in October 2005. On April 17th, 2006 I moved to [Los Angeles], got tested at AIM and found an agent. I performed my first sex scene on May 1st, 2006 in Fashionistas Safado: The Challenge (2006). Although I have come a long way since then, many people in society believe that I am a victim. I was not sexually abused. I am not on drugs. The acts I perform are always consensual. I am a woman who strongly believes in what she does--it is time that our society comes to grips with the fact that "normal" people, women especially, enjoy perverse sex. I hope to inspire people from all walks of life, and to collaborate with innovative individuals--bohemians welcome. Many people mistake this thought and believe that I desire all women to do porn and fuck like rabbits, ignoring all health risks. This is not what I preach or believe. Like any business, I take risks in my profession. Anyone considering porn as a career should be fully aware of these risks before jumping in. I am ready to take on any opportunities and challenges that face me as a woman, porn star and artist.
