Cherie Roberts (born December 8, 1978 in Oakland, California), aka Kitana Jade, is a model and photographer who worked with Playboy in the early-to-mid 2000s, modeled for numerous men's magazines and websites, and toured with Hot Import Nights car shows from 2000-2006.
Roberts was born to an Irish/British/German/Native American father and Vietnamese/French/Chinese mother. She was raised in San Jose, California with her younger sister and older brother. She was an exotic dancer in San Francisco when she was discovered by a local company to model for a bikini calendar. In 2000, Roberts modeled for several Playboy Special Edition issues, and created her own website which she designed and maintained on her own. In 2001, Roberts moved to Hollywood, California after she was crowned Miss Hot Import Nights 2001. She toured with the company for several years, making dozens of appearances across the US. Roberts was featured in several import car scene DVDs and in the racing video game, Street Racing Syndicate. She was also one of the early adopters of social networking site, MySpace, where her page quickly became one of the most trafficked pages on the site, establishing Roberts as an early MySpace celebrity.
In 2005, Roberts created a second website for her photography, and began actively shooting photography for Suicide Girls. Since then, she is best known for shooting glamour and nude photography for several companies, including gaming sites UGO.com and IGN.com. In 2007, she shot a calendar featuring nude models and vintage video game consoles for a company called Nerdcore. She followed up the 2007 Nerdcore calendar with the 2008 Nerdcore calendar featuring nude models shot as superheroes and villains which Maxim magazine dubbed "The Sexiest Calendar in 2008" in their February 2008 US issue. In addition to her glamour and nude photography, Roberts has also shot various musicians and bands, including Puscifer (solo project of Maynard James Keenan of Tool and A Perfect Circle fame), and Jordan Zevon, among others. Roberts' work is also regularly published in BPM magazine, in a monthly feature.
Roberts continues to pursue her photography career, write articles, and still maintains her websites.
