I hold the Blue Badge in Tourist Guiding (Southern and South East England). This is the UK's highest professional qualification for tourist guiding - the training is detailed and comprehensive. I’m a Member of the Institute of Tourist Guiding and I am accountable to their Code of Professional Conduct.
From 2001-2013 I worked on the LGBTQ History Tour of Soho with the community development organisation centred, where I developed the tour content and trained new accredited guides.
I’ve lived in Brighton since 2007. When not guiding, I can be often found coaching English pronunciation and performing improvised comedy.
I have Public Liability Insurance through the British Guild of Tourist Guides.
