“Working as an editorial photographer in the health and fitness industry since 1990, I've had the pleasure to collaborate with Kerrie Lee Brown since she was placed in charge of creating American Health & Fitness [magazine]. The publication was a tremendous success due to Kerrie-Lee's foresight of bringing celebrities and fitness together into one publication. This lead to a series of successful photo shoots with Hollywood players and superstar athletes that where also well advertised through broadcast television and news outlets. While editor-in-chief of Oxygen magazine, Kerrie-Lee excelled at bringing her talents to that publication as well, and in turn, helped it achieve the level of international success it enjoys today.
