I am 47 years old and grew up in Yorkshire in the North of England. I first moved to London in 1990 and it is where I still call home today. I studied American Studies at Liverpool University and also spent a year studying at the University of Rhode Island in the USA. After 4 years of office work I retrained as a fitness trainer and moved to Sydney, Australia for 18 months where I worked at the 2000 Olympic Games. Two years later I worked on Cruise Ships in the Caribbean. In 2005 I trained as a Primary School Teacher and still do a lot of work with schools today. I also worked as a Tour Director for 6 years taking American High School Students around the UK and Ireland. With my varied occupational history I am accustomed to working with all nationalities from all walks of life. I look forward to sharing my local knowledge and personal experience of London and its surrounds with you and your group.
If you're unable to visit London right now I also offer a variety of Virtual Tours, via Zoom, including Street Art, British Food and Secret London.

Sports & Pastimes

I love sport and keeping fit and regularly compete in triathlon and distance running. In May 2011 I biked from Lands End to John O'Groats.


I am a regular theatre goer and belong to a number of theatre clubs from fringe to west end.

Food & Drink

Food is my oxygen! I love eating out and enjoying food in all its forms and nationalities, from a greasy spoon to a Michelin star.

Walking Tours

To really discover London's heart and its secrets you have to do it on foot, dust off those walking shoes and come and explore.
