Amateur Amber Alexandria is soft in the middle and rough around the edges. “I have had an amazing life,” she says, not wasting any time. “Rocky – but amazing. I’m from Orange County, but I’ve lived in four different states. My mother made me the woman I am today. Unfortunately, she passed away in 2011, but her bravery and determination in life gave me confidence in myself.” Amber’s family raised racehorses, and it’s no wonder she’s a fast-moving free spirit.
Amber was an active teenager – she did stints on the Varsity track and volleyball teams her freshman year of high school. She spent the next three years being homeschooled, where she got close with her brother and two stepsisters. Nowadays she’s living in San Clemente, California, where she spends her days baking in the heat on the blacktop, watching her guy friends skateboard. “I don’t really have girlfriends besides my stepsisters,” confides Amber. “We do everything together, and it’s always a good time.”
Modeling ran in the family, and Amber started out young, working for Roxy and other LA-based brands before she made the big move to Playboy. “It’s a way to show my confidence,” says Amber. “It’s great to be able to work with such a well-known brand. And having fun and being sexy while I’m doing it.”
She’s single, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t know what she wants. “I know what kind of man I want to marry,” she says purposefully. “He’s got to make me laugh, and he’s got to be loyal. I don’t want to settle for someone I’m not 100% happy with. I’m free-spirited, and I’ll wait for the man I can run free with. And I love a pair of scuffed Converse.”
