About Me

it all began with a camera...and a one-way ticket to l.a.

I was a top-earning paparazza in Los Angeles from 2006-2009, where I photographed hundreds of celebrities including Katy Perry, Jennifer Aniston, Miley Cyrus, Kristen Stewart, Brangelina, Jessica Alba, David Beckham, and Leonardo DiCaprio. My work appeared frequently in publications such as People, Us Weekly, the UK’s The Guardian, TMZ and E-Online.

My experiences are chronicled in my memoir, Shooting Stars, the only paparazzi book of its kind. Prior to photography, I worked in journalism at CNN, and at television networks abroad in New Zealand and Australia. I now live with my family in Colorado where I own a “celebrity-style” family photography business.
