Skye is of Japanese and Caucasian descent whose career background has centered around screen acting, where she has trained for over 15 years. Skye has called her start in adult video as "unexpected." She was a frequent co-host of adult personality Tony Batman's A! Entertainment. In 2001, Skye opened an online store (Purely Skye Designs) which featured original handcrafted jewelry and accessories. In 2013, she partnered up to start a new company, Shameless Shirts, where she designs screen printed T-shirts with explicit sayings on them. Skye identifies as a sex-positive feminist, supporting pornography. She has said in the past: "I feel that the majority of feminists, particularly conservative or radical ones have lost track of the true definition of what feminism is. It's as if they are lost in the idea that women are not sexual creatures just as men, but instead victims to sexuality in general". Skye volunteers by participating in food sorting for AIDS Project LA as well as, a meal food service at the Union Rescue Mission. After graduating from college and when her adult career is over, she plans on going to graduate school to become a marriage counselor and sex therapist. Skye is known in the adult industry for her appearance in feature titles, including movies for Wicked Pictures and Sex Z Pictures. She also had a toy modeled from her own body from Topco, an adult toy company.
Skye was featured in the 2008 movie Sex and the City, twice as an extra in Dexter, and she also appeared on Entertainment Tonight for her role as Ginger in the Gilligan's Island Adult Parody and on the Maury Povich show. In 2009, she was cast in a sizable role, playing the character "Brenda" in Pimpin' Pee Wee (a film based on the 1982 Porky's), a comedy by cult film director Brian Trenchard-Smith and, in 2011, she co-starred documentary style film Cinema Salvation.
