Nina Mercedez was born in Corpus Christi, Texas and is Spanish, Mexican and Italian. She grew up quiet and unpopular in high school (according to her appearance on Jenny Jones From geek to chic
show) and worked a variety of jobs before becoming a stripper right after her 18th birthday.
She worked as a peeler for a few years before seeing a feature dancing and deciding that was what she wanted to do more then just strip (if you haven't been to a strip joint, GO, and the difference between strippers and features are that strippers just strip while features put on a big show). She decided to get into porn to get where she wanted and was photographed by Penthouse in 2000.
Since then she has won numerous awards (Like Miss Nude Universe in 2003) and has been a Vivid girl as well.
