New York City, a love story which I always try to convey through its streets, its buildings, its history, its people and myself, with.. or without traffic!

I have lived most of my life in New York. I worked at the United Nations, CBC/Radio Canada, was a researcher on two books, called FAMILLES DU MONDE, published in the United States, Canada and France, and was a language teacher for five years, teaching French and Spanish in a private Middle and High School. My two children were born here, raised in the city and I saw them growing up the same way as the City: very fast and changing all the time. I started in tourism over twenty years ago, and being a tour guide is an ongoing process, adding new elements every day to a unique puzzle. A tour must be a memorable moment where one shares a personal experience while discovering the greatness of New York, and has fun during thunderstorms, heat waves and torrential rains! But New York is a sunny town... A visit is also the opportunity to provide lots of information about what to do when not with the tour guide!
