Shwmae, Hallo.

I have been guiding tourists for over twenty-five years - around Wales, Ireland and Central Europe – and I have worked all over as both a tourist guide and an actor. As such, I have an especial affection for the works, haunts and story of Dylan Thomas and work extensively with the Dylan Thomas Birthplace Museum.

I am a native of Swansea with (like many people in this part of the world!) an Irish mother and a Welsh father. The shared history of these two Celtic Nations makes for fascinating trips and discoveries.

I live in the village of Mumbles at the eastern end of the Gower Peninsula – the first area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in the United Kingdom.

I lead walking and cycling tours ( and even throw in a bit of performance.

I can help you with planning your visits and introduce you to the heritage - natural, built and cultural - of our enchanting and beautiful part of the world.

I am a Welsh speaker and am highly efficient in German.

Thanks for your interest – and don’t hesitate to get in touch if there is anything you want to know. Croeso i Gymru a ddiolch yn fawr iawn!
