Born in Virginia USA but I speak perfect ‘BBC’ English! Professionally I was a research scientist and university lecturer in biotechnology. First qualified as a Cambridge City guide, and subsequently became a prize-winning South East England Blue Badge Guide. As well as Chichester I also guide in Oxford and many other major cities and sites. I provide bespoke tours (including in German) covering a wide range of topics and venues. I frequently deliver lectures of specialist and general interest and as a tutor provide courses to The Institute of Continuing Education, University of Cambridge, on the History of Science, The Edwardians, The Victorians and Leonardo da Vinci etc.
