Early life[edit]

LaVeaux was born in Golden, Colorado and she is of English, German, Irish, and Scottish descent.[1] She graduated from Wheat Ridge High School.[3]


At 18 years old, LaVeaux began stripping at Shotgun Willie's, a topless bar in Glendale, Colorado.[3] She later began dancing at bachelor parties.[3] She started modeling in men's magazines, such as Playboy, Penthouse, and Hustler, in order to build her brand.[3] She began performing in adult films in 1992.[2] Her first scene was with her friend Alexis DeVell, who she had accompanied to the shoot with initially no intention of performing in the scene, but she was asked if she wanted to replace another performer who didn't show up for work.[2] She was a contract performer for director Paul Norman in 1993.[2] She was once under a one-year contract with the studio VCA Pictures as well.[2] LaVeaux has also done voice acting for hentai cartoons.[2] After nearly a decade long hiatus, she returned to the adult film industry and shot her first comeback scene on September 15, 2008 with Tom Byron for Seasoned Players 6.[4]
