Tera Patrick - arguably the number one porn star in the world today - is a divine and rare mixture of elegance, fashion, and smoldering sensuality. Her exotic natural beauty, perfect skin and voluptuous curves place her in an erotic galaxy all her own. She has transcended hardcore to mainstream celebrity, emerging as the millennium's first authentic global sex symbol.
Born in Great Falls, Montana, to an American Army doctor father of English and Dutch descent and a pure Thai
Mother, Tera moved around quite a bit as a child both in the U.S. and overseas, gaining a valuable, early
understanding of different peoples and cultures. At the tender age of 13, she was spotted by a scout on
Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco and immediately enrolled in the venerable Barbizon Modeling School. Soon
after, Tera signed with Morning Sun, an international division of the prestigious Ford Modeling Agency. An
overnight success in both print and runway, she spent several years as a working model in Japan and Europe.
Upon returning to the U.S. after immense success overseas, Tera felt compelled to give something back and removed her high heels long enough to enroll in Boise State University where she received an undergraduate degree in Biology. Finding helping others truly fulfilling, Tera pursued a career in medicine by achieving a degree as an emergency medical technician from the American Institute of Health Technology. She landed a job as a nurse, the sexiest girl in white her hospital had ever seen.
Even though Tera genuinely enjoyed nursing, her family, friends and co-workers, convinced her to get back into modeling. She soon found herself at an open audition for Playboy
and was selected from among a thousand ambitious and gorgeous ladies for both the magazine and Playboy TV. In the blink of an eye, Tera Patrick was gracing the covers of virtually every important men's publication including Hustler
, High Society
. She remains the only woman to ever grace the covers of Playboy
simultaneously, and she still holds the laudable position of Publisher, Genesis
Magazine as well as Sex Editor for the UK edition of FHM
. And to this day, she is the only erotic performer to appear on the cover of the domestic FHM
A hopeless exhibitionist, Tera further explored her sensuous side and in late 1999, stepped onto the big and
small screens, accepting roles in various nude and soft core features like The Seduction of Maxine
and other 'skin-a-max' soft-core flicks. Then, in 2000, she appeared in her first hardcore adult feature Aroused
, directed by adult visionary Andrew Blake. Since then, her XXX-star has risen faster than any
performer in recent history. And her naughty notoriety spread as the co-host of Playboy Night Calls, 411.

After dating for a year and a half, on January 9, 2004, Patrick married Evan Seinfeld, singer/bassist for the hardcore heavy metal band Biohazard and an actor best known for his 5 year co-starring role in the gritty, critically-acclaimed HBO series, Oz
. They married privately in a secret ceremony in Las Vegas. Tera took a break from adult cinema and accompanied Seinfeld on his world tour with Biohazard where they shared the bill with such acts as Ozzy Osbourne, Pantera, Slayer, the Red Hot Chili Peppers and Cypress Hill.
In 2003 Patrick and Seinfeld formed Teravision, the production company bearing her name. Tera exploded as a contract star ("Vivid Girl") for porn giant, Vivid Entertainment, but the dynamic duo was confident they
could produce top quality adult fare on their own. Today, Teravision releases two High Definition erotic adult movies each month via U.S. distribution through Vivid. Erotica's unstoppable couple is currently working on a reality show as well as joint biography, co-authored by former Hustler
and RIP Magazine
