Biography

I am a qualified guide and a native Londoner with a passion for sharing the less well known and surprising aspects of the city I love.

In addition to guided walks on a range of topics from contemporary sculpture and modern architecture to The Great Fire of London and The Romans, I am a member of the guiding teams for The Guildhall Art Gallery, The Billingsgate Roman House and Bath House and Leadenhall Market.

I was an inner London primary school and early years teacher for over 20 years and before that a costumier specialising in period costume.
