*I love being a DK tour guide because the people that come not only get our culture with the history that I’m able to give them ....they also get the cuisine & the cuisine gives them  the triple thread with the music.  

*I think the The best secret about New  Orleans is this fact that our hospitality is real. It’s our major commodity and what people enjoy the most. 

“My favorite dish in New Orleans is gumbo because I can’t get my mama’s gumbo no more.”

I am a New Orleans native & I love going to second lines & bc it’s a culmination of what we’ve been doing sine the 1730’, 1740’s and congregating in Congo Square.   Where we have been practicing a culture and  it becomes an economical event....Such as people vending in Congo Square since the 1730s until present day 2019... people are selling beer at the back of the truck, food off the back of the truck which is economic empowerment for the black community which only happens in New Orleans on Sundays.

The people Of New Orleans have such a "joie de vivre," which I love. My favorite place in New Orleans is the Mississippi River Front. One of the best kept secrets about the city is the international influence on our cuisine, architecture and music. We're not just French! I love being a tour guide because it’s a great way to spend each day - sending people home with wonderful memories of our beautiful city.

I love New Orleans because people celebrate life and live joyfully every day! I spent 5 years traveling the world performing in tours of musicals! I found that experiencing the people and food from each place was my very favorite thing. Now I teaches dance, voice, and theatre to kids of all ages, and get to enjoy meeting people from all places while giving tours of my favorite city on the planet, New Orleans!

Culinary & History Story Teller (Operations)

I worked as an outdoor educator and guide before landing in New Orleans. With a love of history, culture and people, I continue to usher and entertain guests around a place I love. The people make New Orleans! You can tell our locals are as happy to be here as guests are to visit. Quirky Trait: I love to pick up rocks and seashells and put them in jars - they are all over my house!

I love New Orleans with a passion. The food, the people and the music. I love New Orleans BBQ shrimp and grits, and the raw oysters. Doing food and cocktail tours is like theater "Show Time". When I am not doing tours, you can find me in my studio working on projects, playing Irish music on the Uilleann Pipes, or I might be on a movie set working as a background actor.
