Heath, thanks for taking the time to talk to us today.
Thank you for the opportunity, Jason. I’m in Berlin right now! It’s incredible here. I have had a blast and got to meet so many great people, including Chi Chi LaRue who was DJing at Hustlaball. I head home later this week, and it has just been an incredible time for me.
That’s one of the perks of porn stardom, for sure—all the travel you guys get to do! How did you get involved in this industry anyway?
I went to Folsom Street Fair two years ago and met [performer/director] Steve Cruz. He handed me his business card and said if I was ever interested in doing videos to let him know. I thought about it for a while before making the decision.
Your first sex scene, though, was with Hot House, correct?
Yeah! With Kyle King. The movie is called Major Asshole. I was really nervous. It was a last-minute thing. I was on vacation in California and just happened to be in San Francisco the same weekend they were filming. It was great to have a scene with Kyle, though, because we are best friends and it was fun to work with him.
Do you still get nervous on shoots, or has that gone away over time?
Yes, I still get nervous. I am still new at this! Most people have sex in the privacy of their own home. I have it on camera where people critique it. So I get a little nervous at times.
That makes sense! When you were doing that first shoot, did you ever think you’d have a fan base, or was that part of why you did it?
Not really. I was shocked when I was at Folsom Street Fair this year and people actually knew who I was. It was pretty exciting!
So what’s your favorite type of guy to work with?
It depends on the day for which type of guy turns me on! [Laughs] I am not partial to one particular kind.
Equal opportunity! [Laughs]
I will say that I like a guy who is confident! Having a nice ass is always a plus, and usually all the guys in films have nice asses.
Speaking of asses, you seriously have a football player’s build—do you play a lot of sports?
Well, growing up I played just about every sport in school. That is until high school when I broke two vertebrae. From there, I had to stop sports for a while to allow my back to heal. In college I realized I was a bit chunky, so I got into bodybuilding. I started reading body building magazines and began changing my diet and switching up my routine. But I went from chunky to twink! I moved to Chicago after college, where I met my partner, who taught me how to work out and eat. From there I was able to transform my body in a great way.
What do you think sets you apart from a lot of other superstars working in porn today?
I am still learning, so if there is something that sets me apart it’s that I am so new and have a lot to learn still. I think there are a lot of great superstars out there and I would not want to be set apart from them. I look up to them.
That’s one of the best answers ever, Heath. We like a humble porn star. Are there any fantasies you want to live out on camera that you haven’t shot yet?
Oh yeah, there are many! Most of my films have been military movies. I would like to do a group scene. I think that would be a lot of fun.
What is your favorite scene you’ve shot so far and why?
They all have been so great for different reasons. I would say the scene with Steve Cruz is my favorite. The professionalism that he upholds is amazing. It was great to learn so much from him and to be able to work with a superstar like him.
What studios haven’t you worked for that you’d really like to work with?
Channel 1, Titan and Colt.
While we’re at it, any performers you’re dying to get at?
There are many! The one that stands out the most is François Sagat.
Tell me something a lot of your fans probably don’t know about you.
I am a down-to-earth guy that is a bit shy. I am extremely hard working and want to exceed at everything I do. I also have the greatest English Bulldog, and she is my baby. [Laughs]
Nice! Okay, last question: If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Well I think that we all would like an inch or two more, if you know what I mean. [Laughs] But if I was to change something I think that it would be to start working out seriously when I was 10 years old. All these guys that have just ridiculous bodies at 21, they started when they were so young! I wish that I could go back and change that part of my life, or have a mentor to show me what to do early on.
Thanks again for taking the time, Heath. Hey, do you think we’ll see you in this business for a while? Opening your own studio or directing someday even?
Well, right now I am just here to have fun. I want to see how far I can go and you never know what the future holds. I don’t necessarily think this is a very long-term career. For the short time that I do it, I am going to have fun with it.
