Stephen

Kings Cross, New South Wales, Australia

I'm a local in the inner eastern precincts of Sydney.

I've lived in the Elizabeth Bay, Potts Point, Darlinghurst, Kings Cross district for over 30 years and in Sydney my whole life. I love this beautiful and bohemian area and I'm absorbed in collecting stories and information about it's past and present, along with other fascinating precincts of Sydney and it's surroundings.

After a long career in international advertising agencies, I've spent the past decade or so as a tour guide, role-player, event manager and trainer. I also produce and direct theatre, radio and film.

Fifteen years ago I founded the Kings Cross-Potts Point business association and ran it for seven years. Because this historic area is famous for it's dining and entertainment, I established the Saturday Kings Cross food markets and founded and produced four Kings Cross Food & Wine Festivals attracting over 10, 000 people to each event. So I know food, wine and markets in Sydney and it's surrounds very well.

I've also traveled the world on scores of journeys and have visited hundreds of cities. I love travel and exploring our world.

All these experiences have given me an in-depth knowledge of the history, culture, architecture, arts, entertainment, food, wine and interesting characters and stories of my city and how Sydney compares with other places around the globe.

I'm passionate about sharing my knowledge and enthusiasm about this wonderful city with others.

I look forward to the opportunity to act as your Private Guide for Sydney and surrounds, do join me soon on a private tour!
