Having first worked in this beautiful region in 1992, I have spent several seasons as a Tour Director on the luxury hotel barges that cruise on the stunning waterways of Burgundy.
After exploring other regions of France and Europe in my successful management career in overseas tourism, I decided to return to my first love - France and Burgundy. An area rich in culture, heritage, wine and the art of fine living, what could be better.
Securing a position, advising clients in a prestigious wine cellar in the Cote d'Or, I realised that although I love my job, I miss the pleasure of sharing my

Born and raised in Los Angeles, I studied Classics and French in Paris as well as film in LA. I'm completely bilingual as well as conversant in both cultures. I have been based in Paris since 1992. As a translator, I have worked on film and television projects as well as video and board games.
I have also worked for the French museums and monuments: the Musée Gustave Moreau, the Louvre, the Conciergerie, the Saint-Chappelle and the Musée d'Orsay, which has offered a hands-view of the history of art. On these sites I have greeted representatives from the Met in New, and both London's Natio

Guiding in my beautiful region has always been more than a work since 1984, it is a PASSION! Since I was 19, I have toured groups and individuals all around the French Riviera from St Tropez to San Remo (Italian Riviera) including in Monaco/Monte-Carlo with interesting comments and a smile on my face!
Each year, I find new interesting sites that only locals know to share my knowledge with guests, who most of the time become new friends. With me, you always decide on how you spend your day, but I always give you great suggestions and a large choice (like a pique-nique, or an off-the-beaten-tra
