Kassin started out in the adult entertainment industry in September, 2000 as a nude model posing for various websites and local amateur photographers. She first began performing in explicit hardcore movies in 2003. Katja moved to the United States that same year and permanently settled in Los Angeles, California in late 2004. Kassin worked for porn talent agent Mark Spiegler for three and a half years. Moreover, she signed with the top agency L.A. Direct Models in September, 2006.
