More about...

I've been leading tours in Boston for Free Tours By Foot Boston since the organization started conducting tours of the city of Boston in 2012.  I love sharing my knowledge of Boston's rich history not only with the guests on our tours, but with everyone I meet.  Boston has such a wonderful history, and pretty much anywhere you are in Boston there is a historic story, building, or important event that took place.  

I love to travel and while I have been to just a couple countries, I have toured most of the United States. I have an interest in acting and the theatre, and have acted in many plays (small local theatre) as well as appeared as an extra in a few films and have been featured on a local television show called Chronicle (Episode: Tiny), as some local news clips.

I enjoy spending time with friends and family, reading (fiction and non-fiction), exploring different historical sites, and meeting new people.

I've been a tour guide since 2012 and specialize in Boston's Neighborhood and Freedom Trail Tours. I also write some not so great poetry, and love wandering through Boston checking out the sites/activities that are always happening in our great city.
