My career in the porn industry started very late, I was at the Eagle in Amsterdam with my husband, playing, as usual, in front of people and I told him that I would have loved to do porn he supported me and here we are!

My first video was shot a few months later in London with Butch Dixon and that was the beginning of my International modelling career that has included live& filmed performance as well as clothing modelling.

I have worked for a large number of studios in Europe and North America including Cazzofilm, Crunchboy, Dadsfucklads, Hot Older Male, Natural Born Breeders, Bearfilms, Victor Cody, and many others along the way winning several porn awards in different categories including 15 Raven Eden Awards.
