A boy with a dream to return to the home of his ancestors, became a man who can't get enough of the city of New York.

Jason has lived in New York for 10+ years. Several instances during this time, life has taken him elsewhere, but everytime, whether that be from across the world or across the river, New York comes calling him back. This excitement still holds on the short and final flight approach, the first sight of the skyline when driving or traveling by rail, or the first steps out of the subway. New York is home and Jason is happy to share what makes this city *the* best city in the world.

Jason has led tours of all sizes and brings a wealth of knowledge to make your visit memorable for years to come.

Prior to guiding, Jason held several finance, consulting, and tech jobs, holds an MBA, and has lived in and/or traveled to 45+ countries. Jason is also a foodie and routinely seeks out new and exciting cuisines across the city.
