Lovely and petite 5'5" brunette knockout Inari Vachs was born on September 2, 1974 in Michigan. She grew up in the Midwest. Vachs worked in a few corporate establishments prior to moving to Southern California and beginning her career in explicit hardcore movies at age 23 in November, 1997. Her porn pseudonym stems from both the Japanese goddess of good fortune and her favorite author Andrew Vachss. She won the AVN Award for Female Performer of the Year in 2000. Subsequent awards Vachs has won include XRCO Awards for Best Actress in 2000 and Orgasmic Vocalist in 2001. Inari began her own production company called IV Multimedia in 2003. In 2005 Vachs served as the co-host of the Playboy TV series "Naughty Amateur Home Videos." Inari took a hiatus from the adult film industry for several years, but started performing again in porn movies in 2010. She was also inducted into the XRCO Hall of Fame that same year. Vachs enjoys hiking, rock climbing, and snowboarding in her spare time.
