Cultural City Tours
My professional background in the Arts makes me an inspired cultural tour guide.
I've always had a keen interest in architecture of all eras, and I like to think it's in my blood. My mother's father would take his six children on Sunday morning walks through their home town, the city of Amsterdam. Grandfather pointed at gables and gargoyles, illustrated guild plaques on façades, and the way antique window panes get heavy at the bottom. He taught his children to have an eye for style and design and love for architecture. Decades later I must have naturally followed my grandfather's footprints, guiding visitors through my old hometown on the Amstel river.
In Seattle, I've been presenting architectural tours of the Central Library, designed by OMA/LMN, since its opening in May of 2004.
It's my joy and passion to share my knowledge with people who are eager to learn more about the Emerald City.
Following trails that lead by Public Art, inside and outside green buildings, through organic gardens, and parks is my privilege and pleasure.
