Guide at a Glance
I’m a licensed sightseeing tour guide and educator based in Jerusalem. Originally from London, I’ve lived in Israel since 2006 and I’m passionate about its people, history, politics, buildings and landscapes. I’m not interested in giving lengthy speeches full of facts and figures as you’re on holiday and I’m not a history teacher. Instead, I encourage you to think about what you’re seeing, ask plenty of questions and use original methods and multimedia tools in order to bring a site to life.
Whether it’s a chat with a local in a little-known coffeehouse, a spectacular but lesser-known view or a wander through the back streets, I want to help you have experiences that you wouldn’t have otherwise. This will ultimately make a trip memorable. Alongside the more famous sites, I want us to experience contemporary Israeli life together.
Here’s some info about me: I hold a first-class honours degree in History from the University of Manchester and an M.Phil in International Relations from the University of Cambridge, where I was the Abba Eban Scholar at Queens College. During my undergraduate studies, I spent a semester at the University of Massachusetts.
I am a voracious reader and occasional writer with a particular love of fiction, history and travel writing. I’m a big fan of hip-hop music and I’m a moderately engaged supporter of Liverpool Football Club (but I’ll happily guide supporters of Manchester United).
