A guest is visiting you. Where is the first place you take them?
Dicks drive-in. Its cheap and satisfying. Unique to Seattle and really funny to suggest we "go get a bag of dicks."
Why do you like showing people around?
I love sharing the city I live in with others. I love seeing the smiles on peoples face as they try a new food for the first time or are able to see Seattle in way they only have seen in photos. Experiencing things for the first time over and over and over.
What is your favorite place in the world and why?
Nara, Japan. Hands down. After my first trip there in 2014 I fell in love. Its so relaxing walking around with a can of beer, Some taro ice cream, while the cherry blossom pedals fall and feed the deer as they surround you in park. It's become my happy place. I love it so much I have come back on 3 separate occasions.
What are your hobbies outside of being a local guide?
I looove photography. I am actually a semi-pro street and events photographer specializing in candid-street shots and elaborate costumes.
Pineapple on pizza. yes or no?
Yes. its delish. I know some people don't like it but its got that good flavor combo I love.
