I love California. It's my vibe, my jam, my inspiration. We've got it all here from surfers to superstars, free love to silicon tycoons. What better place to live, and when I leave it's always in my eyes. This is the beginning of an ongoing project to document everything that inspires me about the Golden State.

I spent 17 years working in photojournalism for the Associated Press, managing coverage of every major event from news and sports to entertainment. Now I am a fine art and freelance editorial photographer. I also freelance regularly as a photo editor for wire services at major events and other clients.
