Annie Cruz (born November 6, 1984) is the stage name of an American pornographic actress, model, dating coach, and web/graphic designer.[1]

Early life and education[edit]

Cruz was born in Stockton, California to Filipino parents. She graduated from Brookside Christian High School in Stockton, where she was a cheerleader, and she 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 left without graduating. Instead, she began performing in pornographic films.[1]

Career[edit]

Cruz appeared on The Howard Stern Show on March 28, 2006.[3] That same year, she appeared in a minor role in the film National Lampoon's Teed Off Too.[4] Other mainstream credits include appearances in John Dies at the End,[5] The Night Crew,[5] and a lesbian version of MTV's show NEXT.[5] She also has made several appearances on WEW (Women's Extreme Wrestling).[6] In 2011, she appeared in Stephen Malkmus' music video Senator alongside actors Jack Black and Gary Cole.[citation needed] Cruz has also been featured in sex and bondage videos for several of Kink.com's many websites.

She trained as a boxer with one of Laila Ali's former coaches. She fought and won two boxing matches, but gave up boxing for fear of an injury that might interfere with her porn career.[7]

In 2014, she met doctor and professional dating coach Don Davidson at the AVN Awards in Las Vegas. The pair began to date and launched DrDLifestyle.com,[8] a men's lifestyle design and dating coaching company. In 2015, the couple launched a fitness speed dating company and humorous condom company.[9]

Personal life[edit]

Cruz is a vegan.[10] She met Jack Lawrence in 2004, whom she married at the Adult Entertainment Expo 2005 in Las Vegas.[11] They divorced two years later apparently due to "differences".[10] Cruz previously identified as bisexual[7] but now considers herself queer or pansexual.[1]
