Originally from Texas, I moved to London in 2001 and my first job was as a double-decker bus tour guide. From there, I studied and worked in London, and created a tour guiding business specialising in providing tours to families who want to get the most out of their vacation. I have 15 years experience as a qualified tour guide for the City of London, Westminster, Camden, St Paul's Cathedral and Guildhall Art Gallery. (I hold an official badge for each of these areas/locations.) I also hold a teaching qualification for further education. My presentation style is dynamic and fun, always keen to find hidden and unknown stories of the past. Each corner of London has an incredible history to tell. On my tours, I dress in costume and use storytelling to bring history to life. Due to the pandemic, many of my tours have transformed to online presentations, and I am still able to reach customers from all over the world.
