In addition to leading tours all over the United States and Canada, I enjoy my travels outside of North America, including Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom. Originally from Connecticut, my favorite season is autumn when the stunning fall foliage transforms the area into an even more beautiful landscape.
