ABOUT ME

BEHIND THE FACE

I first learned the art of guiding in Paris, where I was working as a nightclub singer. An opportunity presented itself: to travel and train as a guide for American students, and hone my skills while touring Europe. It was an incredible few years of fun and sharing, learning about other cultures, and being a good ambassador for my city and country.

Upon returning to my beloved home town, New York City, my love of guiding led me to obtain my license - and from there I cultivated clients for touring in New York as well as throughout the Eastern US and Canada. I have been working in the field of tourism for over 20 years now. From walking tours to step-on coach tours, from private shopping excursions to culinary adventures, from tours steeped in history to explorations of the cutting edges of what's happening in this incredible town - there is something for everyone. All clients - the young or the old, the well-heeled and worldly wise to the fresh faced and just embarking traveler  - will be well pleased with my personalized & customized service.

 

I have worked with tour operators, schools, professional organizations and families,  couples or small groups who value VIP treatment, impeccability and attention to detail.
