Biography

Having worked in London for most of my working life, I have always found the City of London fascinating as even the most modern office blocks can reveal clues to nearly 2000 years of history that is all around us if you know where to look. I enjoy exploring the unusual and sharing this knowledge with visitors.

As a qualified City of London Green Badge guide and member of the Institute of Tourist Guiding, I delight in showing you fascinating details in some buildings that you may have walked past many times and never noticed.
