I've lived and traveled in lots of places around the world, courtesy of my previous life as a teacher and an Air Force officer, but Margaret River is my favourite. I genuinely enjoy my work because I get to share a beautiful place with curious travelers. The perfect combination.
I have a strong affinity with people who don't have English as their first language. I love meeting people from around the world and adjusting my tour pace, pitch and depth to suit every customer. We often end up best friends by the end of the tour.
I'm a people person.
I love a laugh and I love to meet you and to hear your story.
I know there are lots of options out there, but if you are a savvy traveler you'll know that it's easier with a local.
I grew up in the region and I have watched Margaret River develop over my lifetime. Boutique wineries, delicious local fresh produce and seafood, stunning natural beauty, art, hiking the Cape to Cape track, drifting slowly down the river, hunting and photographing unique wildflowers, exploring caves and Karri Forests, fishing. I have so much to show you and let you experience.
We'll have a lot of fun. I can't wait for you to visit!
