Born in England, I lived much of my life in Australia before moving to Italy in 1988. With my passion for the great outdoors and love of good food and wine, setting up a boutique walking tour business seemed a natural choice.
I have been working and living in Italy since 1995 and still get a thrill from discovering great hotels and restaurants, new wines and unspoiled landscapes. I have a particular interest in wine and in July 2010, after three years of study, I was awarded the Diploma of Wine from WSET (London). I also am a certified Wine Educator at advanced level.
I am fluent in Italian and French and when not researching and guiding tours, I divide my time between Italy and Scotland.
