About Me

I am an American who has been living in London for nearly a decade. My passion is for introducing people to this beautiful city and creating memorable days out. Originally from a theatre and drama background, I have worked as a tour guide since 2013, both as a freelancer for many companies as well as an independent guide. I cover a wide range of topics from history to Harry Potter, pubs to public toilets.

I feel my photography is an extension of my love of storytelling... a chance to visually capture the joy and excitement that I try to bring to my tour guiding work. I primarily photograph young children and families, though have also been fortunate enough to cover baptisms, birthday parties, themed shoots, and even a cabaret show! I also combine my photography and tourguiding with Smartphone Photo walks for London Guided Walks.

When not tour guiding, photographing, or chasing after my incredibly active toddler I can often be found performing and teaching Morris Dance as a member of The Belles of London City.
