Patricia Ford was born March 17, 1969, in Honolulu, Hawaii. With a diverse background consisting of Chinese, Hawaiian, Portuguese, German, and Irish, Patricia must be fascinated by her world travels while on modeling assignments.
For someone who has never been a Play.boy Play.mate, Patricia has done an extensive list of work for Mr. Hefner. Her work with the bunny magazine includes the following: The cover of a German Play.boy's March 1996 edition; the cover of Australian Play.boy's July 1996 edition; 12 issues of Play.boy's Book of Lingerie, from January 1993 to June 1996, not including the 50th Issue Anniversary Special. She was named Play.boy's Book of Lingerie Model of 1996.
Patricia also has other Play.boy Specials on her resume: Bathing Beauties in '93, '94 and '95; Girls of Summer in '93, '94 and '96; and Blondes, Brunettes & Redheads in '93; Beauty Queens in '94; and Hot Denim Daze in '95.
Besides the notorious Play.boy, Patricia has appeared in many adult magazines, such as High Society and Club International (both times as Brandi), Men's World, Men Only, Spice, Model Directory, Club, and Cheri Undercover.
As 5-time winner of the Bikini Open ('88, '91, '92, '93, '95), Patricia appeared in the Bikini Open videos, as well as 1990's The Hawaiian Swimsuit Edition, Play.boy's How to Reawaken Your Sexual Powers, Secretarial Pool, Exotic Encounter, and Unexpected Pleasure, as well as 1996's Patricia Ford; Hawaii's International Supermodel Video Magazine.
Crossing over to television, Patricia's television credits include Raven, Birds of Paradise, One West Waikiki, Extra, and Entertainment Tonight. She has also appeared in television commercials for Bud Light, Miller Lite and Splash (Bikini store). In the tradition of models appearing in music videos, such as James King, Linda Evangelista and Nadja Auermann, Patricia was cast in The New Generation's ''Sweet Okole'' video.
Puanani (Patricia's nickname meaning ''beautiful flower'' in Hawaiian) can even list Play It To The Bone, Venus Descending and Biggles: Adventures in Time, as her ventures into film.

Crowned Miss Maharajah '92 in Honolulu, Patricia has literally made her mark in all four categories of media, and although she already has a large Internet following, she hopes to launch her own Web site in the near future.

She hopes to someday start a family, and I'm sure men worldwide would be more than happy to oblige.
