Escorting tours for more than 10 years
After a trip to Moscow in 2006, I developed an insatiable desire for travel. I really enjoy working with people, so tour directing seemed like a natural fit. I believe travel is vital to becoming a more well-rounded person. Exposure to other people and cultures gives us a better understanding of just how much we all have in common. I enjoy being able to share places and experiences that I love with others-I look forward to seeing you on the road!
