Michael T.

Santa Barbara, California, United States

Hello!, my name is Michael! I am a very local retired investment advisor.

I have lived in Santa Barbara for 43 years and love my city. Over the years I have shown many family and friends around the town to enthusiastic appreciation. I have a 2019 BMW X5 for your touring pleasure. I am originally from Queens New York, having moved to Santa Barbara in 1975 upon completing college. I have a BS in Business management from SUNY Binghamton. I look forward to meeting you!

I have 3 grown children, a step daughter and 3 grand daughters. My outside interests include hiking, extensive travel, pickle ball, movies books and live theatre! There are so many really beautiful places to see in Santa Barbara. We are a town full of parks, beautiful beaches and restaurants galore. We can cover a lot of ground with a private and personal tour.

Let me show you the locals tour of Santa Barbara, the American Riviera!
