I've been a tour guide for over 20 years and consider it a great joy to do this for a living. I bring passion, knowledge, and humor to my tours. I want to give you the best experience and the most accurate information so that you come away happy . . . and maybe a little (more?) in love with Chicago.
Growing up, my family moved between Milwaukee and Chicago. I know and love both cities, but when studying architectural history, I knew I had to be where the architectural action has long been: Chicago. When I had the chance, I made this my forever home.
I bring a "big picture" approach to my tours. For every story, every building, I provide context to enhance its meaning, touching on many aspects of Chicago's story. Indeed, so much of Chicago's history, art, and architecture is connected. I love threading these themes together to give you the full view.
I also bring along a gallery of historic images and video and music clips on my iPad to enhance your experience of the city. I offer my tours as lovingly crafted experiences.
