I have written guided tours for incoming university faculty, and have been hosting international travelers for many years. When I was 19 I backpacked Western Europe and that blew the world wide open for me. I believe that being a traveler and being a guide are two sides of the same coin. I was born and raised in Milwaukee, but coming and going-living in other states and countries over the years-has allowed me to view the city with fresh eyes and to appreciate the changes in a more punctuated way.
I have been working as a city ambassador for Milwaukee Downtown for five years now. This includes six weeks of guided tours over the holiday season to sold out coach buses.
