Colorado-born Kylie Ireland was an only child. Her parents divorced when she was a teenager, and after living with her father in Colorado for a few years she moved to San DIego to live with her mother. She began dancing in strip clubs, where she met adult-film actress Juli Ashton, and soon she traveled to Los Angeles to break into the porn industry. She made her debut in 1994, and has been working steadily since, becoming one of the most popular performers in the business. She recently branched out into producing and directing.
