Such an absolute honour to have you on feature FHM! What has your journey as a certified bombshell been like so far? Thank you so much. It’s been amazing overall, mostly because of the friends I’ve made. Success in this industry really has to do with surrounding oneself with good people. Good people who understand the business really help keep your mind right and have your back. I grew up in a small town in Texas and was often picked on and felt like I didn’t fit in or have a lot of true friends. Once I got into the industry, I had to navigate around a few industry girls who are out for themselves but have been able to find some of the realest, most gorgeous and yet down to earth, and hardworking women I’ve ever known, and I’m lucky to have real friends who have my back and vice versa. 

We are blown away by your drive and professionalism, can you tell us what some of the things that motivate you to stay on top of your game are? The two biggest things that motivate me are the friends who encourage me to push forward, and my fans who have supported me. Living the California dream takes a lot of hard work and thick skin, but I couldn’t do any of what I do without all the love. I’m extremely grateful. 

Top 3 best moments of your career? The day I met Jesse Jane and we became friends. She set me up for my career and where I am today. Second best moment is signing autographs at AVN for thousands of fans, and I’ll never forget the faces and names of the ones who went out of their ways to make time to meet me, and then keep in touch with me via Twitter and Only Fans. Thank you! Third best moment has been to be fully sustainable from the art that I do, and to be able to inspire other women who are coming up in the industry. 

What is your favorite chill time activity? Taking my dog on a walk at the nature preserve here in Newport Beach. 

We are taking you out on your ultimate date and we really want to knock this one out the ballpark, what would that entail? The perfect date would entail spending time with someone I enjoy and have great chemistry with, and we could eat chicken wings for all I care, as long as there is a strong connection (some soulful, sexy brown eyes looking back at me wouldn’t hurt). 

What are, hands down, your absolute favorite things to do? I enjoy working out. I like to watch lectures and learn. and I LOVE to F***! 

3 ultimate deal breakers when it comes to men? Married, has a girlfriend, and guys who don’t pay the dinner bill. 

You have one last chance to do something you have always wanted to do, with no limits on anything, what are you doing? Have twins and a family to nurture and love on. 100%!

Where would you say is your favorite place to be in the world and why? Any beach, at the spot where the sand and water meet (every ocean has a calling). Standing at the edge and looking out to the vastness surrounding me makes me realize how small my problems are. This is the best meditative place and way to put life in perspective. 

What is currently playing on loop on your playlist? Nipsy Hustle, The Mansion; Cardi B; and Kevin Gates.
