My family is very important to me. They come first! They know what I do and have been very supportive. We are still very close.
When I originally started in the business, I was known for very hot sex scenes. Maybe not the nastiest sex scenes, but I was very much into my partner and sweating, all out. When we’re having sex, we are really gonna have sex today.
Acting has always been my first love. I have double major, communication broadcasting and theatre arts. So when I first came to LA I wanted to be a famous movie star. But I always tell people. “When you dream, be very specific on what you dream about.” Because in my dream, I never said adult, but that’s how it turned out. Which I have no regrets, but I just wasn’t specific over that line. My love for acting and theatre, I’ve been very lucky with it.
