I was kind of dipping my feet in the water the with the Andrew Blake film. Then I decided I wanted to work with men. In my personal life, I am not attracted to women at all. I can admire a beautiful woman, but I didn`t feel comfortable working with women on that level. I treat the business like a business because I have a business mind. I really enjoy my work and my scenes and I think that`s part of the reason why I haven`t gotten burned out. I`ve been able to pick and choose to a great extent and that helps. Since I do have a nursing career to fall back on, I am not really forced to be in the business. I stay because I truly enjoy the work. [July 2000: Interviewed by Roger T. Pipe]
I did the fashion modeling in New York until I was 18, then I took four years off to go to school in Idaho. I got my degree in nursing. I`m an RN and have a BS in Microbiology. I wanted to attend the University of Southern California. That`s why I moved out here. I got into modeling for financial reasons. I started doing the adult side after I was introduced to Suze Randall. I was a Penthouse Pet and I was in Playboy as well. I just started getting covers and centerfolds and it was a natural progression into videos. I had always had a fantasy about working in front of the camera. My first movie was by a man named Andrew Blake and it was a very softcore-type movie. I was easing my way into things and did some simulated stuff with other girls.
