A native Texan born and raised 20 miles from downtown Houston, I have seen Houston’s growth from the first indoor shopping mall to the first cross-town thoroughfare. I have witnessed Houston develop from an oil-boom town to a world class city with a theater and arts district that is second in the nation behind New York. For the past 12 years I have worked as a Tour Director traveling across the US and Canada after I sold the florist business that I had owned for 18 years, but I never get tired of showing-off Houston to many visitors who find their way to our great city each year. You may contact me at (email) or (phone number) if you would like to arrange a tour. I am a Certified Professional Guide with the PTGAH and currently serve as its Membership Secretary (email).
