Traveling & touring are some of my favorite activities, and I love sharing beautiful places & adventures with others. I’ve hiked & backpacked around the world (45 countries on 5 continents), so I’ve got interesting stories to tell as well. I’m a history aficionado, and my own family has roots in Los Angeles that go back over 100 years. I’ll share some of the fascinating history & geography of LA along the way. While I give the tours in English, I've lived in Japan and Europe, & I speak some Japanese, Spanish, French, & a little Italian to help visiting guests enjoy the experience. I’m an avid photographer as well, & I’ll help you get fantastic & shareable photos from the best views. I’ve been leading tours & hikes for years. Los Angeles is such an amazing place, & I look forward to taking you on a great experience!
