History nerd who enjoys sharing stories... I have been giving tours for a couple years now but have a life long passion for education. On stage management experience at Disneyland along with Olympic moments in Utah give me unapparelled customer service with the ability to adapt tours for guests enjoyment. Always learning -- as Harry Truman said "there is nothing new in history, just what you don't know" and I intend to teach you things along with entertaining. Reviews on my day tours frequently comment on how I blend comedy with an engaging style that leaves them awed. I am constantly reading and learning so your tour will get those items added into what I already know and share. Your questions will inspire me to learn and grow. Thanks
