I am a happy, glass half-full kind of guy who has fallen in love with New York and I want to share this amazing city with everyone! I work in finance in a job I really enjoy but in my spare time I love discovering new places and trying out the myriad of restaurants that never stop popping up. I know the best places to eat and also a number of really cool bars so if you want to see more than just Times Square then I'm your man!

Friendly, knowledgeable New Yorker who enjoys exploring the city I love and sharing it with others. My prior work, interests and travel experiences enables me to relate to visitors from various backgrounds. I have had an expansive career as a teacher, a financial product salesman, a health care executive and energy reduction / environmental business salesman. The thread throughout my life has been an involvement in politics on a local, state and national level. Now that I’m semi-retired I do what I enjoy most; spending time with my family and sharing my love of NYC with others. For the last 5 years, as a licensed NYC tour guide, I have been traveling through the city with guests on the seat of a bicycle. I look forward to meeting you.

Visual Merchandising expert, Fashion, Art & Design enthusiast. NYC is constantly evolving with creative energy, new things to see and do. I'd like to share my finds in this great metropolis with you! I enjoy meeting new people, exploring the city, and discovering new neighborhoods. The newest in retail, shopping, arts and culture; both on and off the beaten path in Manhattan are my specialty. Itineraries planned around your personal tastes and criteria.

When people ask if I'm a native New Yorker, I tell them that my Dad was from Brooklyn - so I claim rights. I grew up in New Jersey and moved into the city after college. I love New York, and I've been showing visitors around the city on a regular basis since 2003. I think I'm a pretty good storyteller, and that really helps with this job. I also have some more niche passions, in particular board games, Marvel Comics and history. As much as I love the big city, I love to travel, and I enjoy meeting other travellers too. There's always more to learn, and there's always more of New York to show.

I'm very proud to be a third-generation New Yorker. I've worked here as an accountant, raised my kids here, and now I am studying painting and art. If you're curious about new and obscure things, let's try them together!

I have traveled around the world and have circumnavigated the globe twice (and then some). The last time I did so was a mission to scatter my partner's ashes in places of spiritual importance, which has led to a vibrant second life and home in central India. My travels have taught me, most importantly, a profound understanding of and curiosity to learn more about other cultures and diversity, and to do so with respect, humor and humility. I have an in-depth knowledge of the city, its culture, people, resources, food, nightlife, iconic places, neighborhoods, entertainment and its history. There are so many fabulous stories, I can give you that. I'm always exploring new places I haven't visited and in a place like NYC, they don't stop. My favorite things here are, as a member of NY's entertainment community, the Broadway Theater and live performance scene. Hidden gems/off-the-beaten-track places and the history that lives on in the city.
