I moved to Copenhagen 16 years ago from Sydney, Australia. The Danish weather was challenging, and the language even more so. Was it worth it? Absolutely!
Denmark, and in particular the city of Copenhagen, are now part of who I am. Being an immigrant has given me a unique opportunity to see Denmark from an outsiders point of view, and I have found this experience invaluable as a tour guide. With fresh eyes and an open mind, we are often surprised and fascinated by what others take for granted.
My background is in theatre and TV After graduating from the University of Western Queensland I toured Australia working with educational theatre in regional and remote areas before moving to Sydney where I worked as an actor in theatre, film, TV and corporate training. Following my move to Denmark, I was accepted onto the Tourism Diploma Program at Roskilde University. I graduated in 2014 and started working as a guide the same year.
I now live inside the walls of the old city of Copenhagen and love it. This is my "hood," and I look forward to sharing its secrets with you.
Every street and hidden passageway has a story to tell, and the most charming shops and places of interest are hidden in places rarely seen by tourists. Exploring them is tremendous fun. But the heart and soul of this city is the harbor itself. Once an industrial port, it has been transformed into the social and cultural hub of the town.
Generally speaking, I do not talk too much about dead Kings and Queens or give you a lot of dates you will never remember (unless of course, that is what you want). You can learn more about Danes buying a coffee and pastry at a cozy cafe than you can in the pages of a guidebook. The experience can be more rewarding than dry facts.
