Biography

 

Left school with some qualifications. Joined a bank and learnt the trade. Spent 20-years, or so, building teams and inspiring colleagues and customers. Left to pursue a career ambition to work in industry, managing everything from people to logistics and machinery. Responsible for everything.

Went back to university to study tour guiding. Qualified as a London guide, specialising in the City of London and Westminster. Have never looked back and have never stopped learning. Have travelled the world from East to West. Always come back to London. Nowhere else like it in the world. Enjoy nothing more than enlightening visitors by telling stories of this wonderful and magical place, and of the characters that have made it so enchanting.

Try to make each tour special and memorable, so that the whole group ends up smiling, informed and inspired.
