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.

My name is Jenn, I'm born and raised in Queens, NYC. NY is my playground. I figure I have to LIVE in the greatest city, not just go through the motions of an everyday routine. I am constantly looking for new things to do, see, eat and well, enjoy. I've worked in restaurants and nightlife most of my life so I know a lot about dance, music, food and the different "scenes." I also teach yoga and am well versed in that "scene" as well. I have a 12 year old son who keeps me involved in sports. I have also traveled extensively. I like the idea of showing a true depiction of the "new" New Yorker. So many of my out of town guests tried their first exotic dish here in NY under my tutelage! I can make people feel comfortable in all sorts of situations and have a great sense of humor, I swear.
