I am a lifelong New Yorker and a native of Brooklyn, and I have spent most of my career in information technology in the financial industry.    However, since 2011 I have been a license NYC tour guide so I could do something I passionately enjoy --- to use my extensive knowledge of the city's local history, geography, architecture, infrastructure, events, and cultural institutions.   This includes ALL of the five boroughs (particularly Brooklyn and Queens), not just Manhattan.    New York City Tour Guide License #1307886-DCA.
