I am a native New Yorker, specializing in walking tours with small, affinity groups.  However, I have been a step-on guide for bus tours as well.  My tours are by their nature customized and personalized to reflect my clients' interests and time constraints.  I utilize public transportation which enables me to create itineraries in multiple boroughs and non-contiguous neighborhoods.  I am gratified to accommodate individuals with accessibility issues allowing them to experience the city without deprivation.  I also have researched requests for ancestral-based tours.  I am trained as a geographer and have a degree in teaching.  By virtue of temperament, personality and experience, I consider myself to be an effective listener and teacher.
