I am currently self-employed and active in the cultural community as an independent Folklorist. Previous positions include Grandstand Coordinator at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Crafts Coordinator for the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation's Community Festivals. I'm not a licensed tour guide but enjoy and am familiar with many aspects of the city and its culture. A Katrina survivor: Mid-City was a "wet neighborhood," and there was 56" of water inside the house when the city flooded. Built in 1924, It has been rebuilt and improved. I'm happy to introduce visitors to the city I love, or to let them chart their own course. I enjoy living in the City of Dreams, traveling, meeting people from around the country and the world and exploring new places myself.
