Kross was born and raised in Sacramento, California. She has described herself in high school as "the book nerd". She began stripping at the age of eighteen at Rick's Showgirls in Rancho Cordova, California, to earn extra money to purchase a pony that was going to be slaughtered. She was later contacted by an agent and started modeling in adult magazines.
Kross was a senior at California State University, Sacramento, when she signed an exclusive performing contract with Vivid Video in November 2006. Her movies with Vivid included Kayden's First Time, Hard Time, and Be Here Now. Unhappy with the company, she became a free agent one year later when she did not renew her contract. After one month of being a free agent, she signed an exclusive contract with Adam & Eve.
Kross has appeared in several episodes of The Block, a reality snowboarding show that aired on G4TV, in which the Vivid Girls went to The Block hotel for a photo shoot. She also appeared on the Gene Simmons' reality show, Family Jewels. She was named Penthouse Pet of the Month for September 2008.
Kross' official web site, ClubKayden.com, launched on September 2, 2008. Alongside a blog she hosts at UnKrossed.com, Kross writes regular updates and opinion columns for MikeSouth.com, an adult industry gossip blog, among other sites.
Kross portrayed the role of Elin Nordegren in "The 8th Day" that went on to be Adam & Eve Pictures film Tiger's Wood. She says she would not have a sex scene with the film's male lead, Tyler Knight, who portrayed golfer Tiger Woods.
Kross will host the 2010 AVN Awards show, along with porn actress Kirsten Price and comedian Dave Attell.
