Biography

I love walking in London and taking tours as happily in French as English. I used to be a documentary film maker and made a couple of award winning documentaries, for Channel 4 TV and their ‘OUT’ series. 

My aim in life is to never lose my endless curiosity. Come on a walk with me to find out about a London you never encountered before....

Talks

My most popular walks are Spooky Spectres in the City which makes for an entertaining winter’s evening walk. It is a fascinating walk through the City with the added bonus of a ghost or spooky tale at each stop. My other popular walks are From Prejudice to Pride, an intriguing wander through LGBTQ+ history; and topically Suffragette City, a walk through suffragette history.

I am an accredited guide at Tate Modern and Tate Britain; and the Guildhall Art Gallery. I love taking people on an art journey.
