Greetings Mammals!!!

I am so very pumped about this project and excited to finally share it with you!

If you are familiar with Downtown LA, you will take notice that it is neighborhood that in a way is a city in itself. Surrounded by new buildings that are going up rapidly on every major street, old historic buildings, skid row, skyscrapers, and lots of amazing street art and culture.

This is the first of three books in the, "Dawgs of Downtown LA" series. 

As a dog walker and neighborhood groupie I encounter so many awesome dogs on a daily basis and I love documenting them against the ever changing trippy neighborhood, Downtown LA.

"Dawgs of Downtown LA", showcases our furry children and city life and all it entails- the good, the bad and the ugly! 

With the help of this Kickstarter, I plan to raise funds to print in high volume and sell the books around in LA neighborhoods as a token and history piece of Downtown LA. I would love for humans and shops around the world to have this piece of art!

I look forward to creating more photo books and products based around mammals and Downtown LA, as well as other cities around the globe! 

A percentage of this Kickstarter will also go back to A Purposeful Rescue, the non-profit rescue that helped me rescue and rehabilitate my dawg, Billie Holiday back to life! It takes a village! 

For more info on how awesome they are- please visit their website:

I'm extremely passionate about this project and really looking forward to sharing this journey with you and seeing that comes from it!

Spread love it's the mammal way!
