I am a long-time certified wilderness guide with a passion for unlocking the secrets of a city and sharing them with my fellow travelers. I worked as a travel guide all over the United States & Canada and specialized in guiding hiking trips in National Parks. It was there that I discovered my love for helping travelers discover new and unique experiences which led me to start my own tours in Southern California where it is always the Endless Summer!
