Since receiving my guide badge in 2006 I have given more than 1000 tours. In addition to the popular tours, I have led special interest tours. For example: Australian farmers on a tour of Denmark, a New Zealand operetta society on a musical themed tour around Sealand, a Malaysian Utility working group to 100% green energy island Samsøe , and Smithsonian special themed tours, My background as a performer helps me bring history alive for my guests. (Acting studies, Theatre Department; graduate studies in Opera Production & Direction, University of Washington.) As a native English speaker it has been a pleasure to show people from Hong Kong, Singapore, India, Malaysia, Canada, Britain, South Africa, as well as fellow Americans around my adopted land. I look forward to meeting you and giving you a tour to remember.
