Herexotic look is the result of being half Thai and half English Jew. Her parentsmet during the Vietnam War. Tera was raised by her father in SanFrancisco after her mother moved back to Thailand when she was young.

Tera began her career as a runway and print model afterbeing discovered at age 13 by a talent scout on the streets of San Francisco. At age 18 she abandoned hercareer and earned a B.S. in Microbiology at the Universityof California, Santa Barbara. It wasn't until the late1990's that she segwayed into pornography.

In 2004 she married fellow porn star and Biohazard rocker EvanSeinfeld. Tera and Evan often perform together, though they still perform withother partners. Tera says "When I work with other guys, Evan has to direct thescenes. When he works with other girls, I get to go out shopping". Sounds likea good deal.
