Erik Everhard (born December 2, 1976) is the stage name of Mitchell Hartwell,[1] a Canadian pornographic actor and director, known for gonzo pornography films.


Everhard is a Canadian national of Ukrainian ancestry. In 1995, he moved to Vancouver, British Columbia to attend university, at which time, he made his first forays into adult films. In 1999, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue a career in the adult entertainment industry. Everhard has appeared in over 1000 pornographic movies, and directed more than 90, most of them for Anabolic Video.[citation needed]

In a 2002 interview, Everhard attributed his career choice not to financial gain but to sexual enjoyment, saying he regularly enjoys sex and masturbation off camera.[2]

Everhard's adult film career began in Canada, performing for web sites. At the urging of friends and colleagues, he decided to work in pornography in the United States. His first shoot in the U.S. would be for upstart director in Philadelphia, Jules Jordan.[3] The two would collaborate to shoot adult scenes over the next years with several adult actresses, including Adrianna Sage and Jeannie Rivers.

After arriving in the U.S., Everhard was hired by Vivid Entertainment, and starred in movies for Anabolic Video, Evil Angel Video and Rosebudd. After securing himself as a performer, Everhard began directing videos for Anabolic and Diabolic Video in 2001.

In 2003, he landed a distribution deal with Redlight District. In 2005 Everhard left Redlight, suing the company for breach of contract, conversion, claim and delivery and accounting. He won the suit.[1] He was then hired by Evil Angel Video. After shooting several films with Evil Angel, Everhard returned to work with Jules Jordan.
