I enjoy making new friends and sharing my love of our great city of New Orleans. I'm a music lover and am knowledgeable about New Orleans' varied music scene. I am a licensed tour guide. I love history and travel and discovering different cultures as well as being thrilled by the beauty of nature. I enjoy many outdoor sports, including snow skiing, biking, hiking, swimming, tennis. I find great pleasure in discovering new food and wine. I try to be a thoughtful guest myself. I enjoy life to the fullest!
When I am traveling, my daughter, Leah, will be your hostess. She is also very knowledgeable about New Orleans, maybe from a different point of view, so don't hesitate to ask her opinions about what to see, do and eat.
