Cat Berry was born in Maryland and raised in California. She has always been into sports: gymnastics, track and field first, then martial arts most of her life. Competing for twenty years at a national level in wushu has given her the discipline and mental strength that applied to both family and professional life.
After studying her bachelor’s in liberal studies in Southern California, she moved to Asia and worked there as a top executive in the music and entertainment industry for seven years. Afterwards, she moved to France with Nick and their children and earned her real estate license and her Master of Business Administration (MBA). With this background, her husband Nick being deeply involved in the shooting industry and the family now settled in the United States, they decided to start an exclusive company that would cater to the most demanding shooters and hunters: Little Trapper Inc. was established.
Nick Berry was born and raised in Paris, France. He started hunting with his dad when he was 3 and shot his first birds at the age of 6. He has been hunting birds and bigger game his whole life in different continents. Nick mainly developed his competitive spirit when playing rugby at a national level from the age of 10 to 30. He has had multiple achievements in this sport, but bad and recurrent injuries forced him to move away from rugby.
After studying two master’s in architecture and civil engineering, Nick set up design firms in Europe and in Asia in 2005 and developed them into a very successful company with 80 architects and engineers within a two-year timeline. Hundreds of projects have now been designed and built by his company that he still partly owns. Moving back to France, he started shooting sporting clays in 2014 and studied all the aspects of this sport (physical, technical and mental) to become one of the best shooters and instructors. After relocating to California in 2016, Nick worked as Director of Operations in North America for Laporte before taking care of the distribution of World class shooting brands under Little Trapper’s umbrella.
Nicolas Berry, Director of North American Operations for Laporte, has attained a tremendous level of shooting success in a relatively short amount of time. He began clay target shooting only five short years ago, at the suggestion of his wife as a replacement for rugby, his former sport of choice.
