I have been a licensed guide since 2007, with two missions.
One, I wish the world would feel the same way I do every time I look at one of the famous sights on my tour. By giving the best tour I possibly can I know I get closer to that goal.
Two, I feel that I owe New York City for the opportunity it has given me and millions of others, and my tours are a token of my appreciation.
Guiding is all I do, it's an art, it's my passion and NYC is my love. Every tour is a poem, that the client and I write, no script, fun is a must also. Everyone visiting the Big Apple should be treated with

As a licensed NYC sightseeing guide of over 10 years, I wanted to create the kind of tours I myself would want to take of New York City. I began as a tourist. I focus on fascinating tales along with historical detail, scandal, ghosts (where possible), and architecture. New York City is rich and dense with art, culture, industry, history and the famous and infamous. There are tales for every corner, every building, every neighborhood. I want to bring some sense of what has made New York City one of the most vibrant, exciting, and greatest cities in the world. Along with being a licensed NYC si Learn more

I am an officially licensed New York City sightseeing guide, listed on NYC.gov. I scored a high 137/150 on my sightseeing licensing exam as indicated by the star next to my name on the following PDF file. (http://www.nyc.gov/html/dca/downloads/pdf/sightseeing_guides.pdf)
I am a detail oriented, historical enthusiast. I do not conduct tours from a dry and scholarly standpoint-but rather do I attempt to create an organically authentic, wholesome, New York City experience for visitors and clients.
In my spare time I write blogs, and participate in political activism.
