- This article is about a porn star
He was raised by his mother, a single parent, who currently works for the U.S. government and has a Master's Degree in Applied Computer Applications. His father was absent prior to his birth.
At 16 he started lifting weights. It is believed that at around that age he became interested in adult material. He worked as a male exotic dancer, truck driver, and warehouse forklift driver between the ages of 18 and 23.
He got his start in porn by simply getting the phone number (from the trade/newpaper L.A. X-Press) of the then prominent producer Randy Detroit. It was at the 1994 AVN Adult convention where he met director/producer Ron Hightower and female performer Juanita Chong, who on sight recommended that he begin a career in adult films.
Notable films & scenes
- He plays the prison chef who guides Katja Kean in the award-winning feature film Pink Prison (1999), produced by Academy Award (Oscar)-nominated director Lars von Trier.
- He also stars in Snoop Dogg's Doggystyle with Jade Marcela in an extremely long anal scene.
- He has sex with A-List starlets like Monique Alexander and Chasey Lain in their first and last interracial pornography scene.
He is known for wearing a lot of college baseball caps in his films. This came about as he shaved off all his hair as it was fashionable at the time, but didn't like the resulting look. He also has curious monochromatic tattoos, which resemble Polynesian designs.
