Teagan Presley was born in Houston, Texas, on July 24, 1985. At the age of 15 she and her parents moved to San Diego, California; she was already a popular girl in high school as a part of the cheerleading squad. While in San Diego she attended a cheerleading competition. A porn star convention was taking place in a section of the premises nearby; consequently, the idea of doing porn crossed her mind. Shortly after turning 18 she made her first adult film, entitled Just Over 18 10 (2004), for Red Light District Video.
