My goal as a guide is to help people experience the city to its fullest - whether they are visiting for a day or staying for the rest of their lives.
I moved to New York City from Florida in 2004 with a goal of being a Broadway actress. I have been lucky enough to perform in operas and musicals all over the United States, as well as appearing as a regular local expert on the television show "Mysteries at the Museum," and the very important role of Maximum Security Inmate #8 in episode 2 of Season 5 of "Orange is the New Black." (I eat some cheese in cell block B.)
When not performing, I put my history degree from the University of Michigan to good use, tour guiding for One World Observatory, City Tales, Ray's Food and Walking Tours, TRAVAC, Junior Tours, Perform America, and the Levy's Unique New York.
I am a giant history nerd who is obsessed with food, fashion, theatre, dance, and opera. My favorite tours to give are Lower Manhattan, Central Park, World Trade Center, Statue of Liberty/Ellis Island, shopping, fashion, Gossip Girl, and food tours.
I work on boats, buses, and on my own two feet!
I really love working with kids! I have a boyfriend with a 12 year old daughter, so I know a lot of the fun things for the younger set and love making history come alive for them.
I also love working with senior groups and can create tours for those who may have mobility issues. Seniors are a particular passion of mine, and in my spare time I volunteer at senior care centers with Sing For Your Seniors.
So whether you at 5 or 500 - let's get out there and experience the Big Apple!
Tours & Services Offered
I offer a special "GOSSIP GIRL EXPERIENCE" tour which has partnered with several shops on Madison Avenue to truly make you feel like Manhattan's elite.
