My passion is running and unless you stumbled onto my site by accident, you would know this about me already. Last year I took the step of marrying my older love of event production and joined it with my running passion to produce a series of trail races with my business partner Janna Williams. Sunset Trail Series ~ Malibu Nights is an 8 week 5K trail race series set in the beautiful mountains of Malibu, California. We hope to bring another season of STS~Malibu Nights in 2015.

Please email me at with your bib number and I will send over your proofs. Each photo is $5 with $2 going directly to the Sparkle Dot Foundation.

Please denote if you prefer a high resolution digital copy or high gloss 4×6 print. Due to the unique nature of the Bandit run’s donation (see below) I am only offering 4×6 prints.

Due to the high volume of photos, I ask that you email me your bib number at  if you are interested in purchasing. I will post your photos for viewing or send you proofs privately, then follow the aforementioned instructions for ordering.
