Early life and education
Cruz was born in Stockton, California, to Filipino parents on November 6, 1984. She graduated from Brookside Christian High School in Stockton, where she was a cheerleader, and claims to have graduated in the top 5% of her class. She then moved to San Rafael to attend the Dominican University of California, majoring in print journalism. In her sophomore year, she transferred to San Francisco State University, but apparently left without graduating. Instead, she began performing in pornographic films.
She also has made several appearances on WEW (Women's Extreme Wrestling). In 2011 she appeared in Stephen Malkmus' music video Senator. Cruz has also been featured in several sex and bondage videos for Kink.com's SexandSubmission.com website.
Cruz is a vegan. She met Jack Lawrence in 2004, whom she married at the Adult Entertainment Expo in Las Vegas. They divorced two years later apparently due to "differences". Cruz previously identified as bisexual but now considers herself queer or pansexual.
