I am a native New Yorker born and bred in Staten Island, my parents both hail from Brooklyn and the Bronx . New York City is in my blood! Since I was a teenager I loved to run the streets of Manhattan learning all of the new and exciting neighborhoods. Most of my afternoons were riding the ferries and subways out to museums and other cultural centers to deepen my knowledge of New York.
As I grew older and settled back into the five boroughs I began teaching history to high school students and developing "tours" in the city to extend their lessons. I realized that the tours were a natural "fit" for me, I got my license and have not stopped since.
I enjoy "teaching on the road" and New York City being my "lesson plan"! My favorite areas of New York are "off the beaten path", where we can both explore the neighborhood together and uncover new and fresh experiences here in my home town!
Looking forward to showing New York City with you!
