I was born and raised in New England and spent a large part of my childhood exploring Boston learning about the city's history and many cultures. I loved showing off my city to friends, family, and out-of-town guests so much that I ultimately became a tour guide. I now lead a team of guides and love sharing my knowledge and passion for Boston with all visitors.

Boston's big draw is obviously American history, but there's so much more to it than what you learned in school! I've spent time discovering the lesser-known stories on and off the Freedom Trail, learning about the historic architecture in Beacon Hill, and getting to know a barkeep or two, so that I can connect you to the Boston of old and new. Of course, there are the postcard historical sights, but I will also take you behind-the-scenes and inside of some of the locales overlooked by many Boston visitors (and even locals!).
