Guide Bio

I was born and raised in Newburgh, NY, in the Hudson Valley region of New York, about 60 miles north of New York City. I graduated from Penn State University in 2002 with degrees in Labor & Employment Relations and Psychology, and then graduated from Villanova Law School in 2005. After practicing law for 3 years at a non-profit, I joined Philadelphia Urban Adventures to pursue my passion and desire to work in the travel industry.

My love for travel has brought me to 8 foreign countries, 43 states, and most of the Canadian Provinces. The summer after I finished college, I took a 3 month road trip with high school friends camping, hiking, and traveling the back roads of the United States. We covered almost 20,000 miles driving mostly the perimeter of the country. I’ve been addicted to travel ever since and nothing brings me more excitement than exploring a new place for the first time.

While law school brought me to Philadelphia, the city itself has kept me here for almost a decade now. I very quickly fell in love with the history, culture, arts, entertainment, energy, and people of Philadelphia. As the Director of Operations and a Tour Guide for Awfully Nice Tours, Philadelphia Urban Adventures and Philly by Segway, my goal is to make every travellers’ tours unique and memorable, and give a perspective of Philadelphia unlike any other.
