I began working as a city guide and upgraded to a full guide shortly thereafter. I enjoy sharing my knowledge of different species of animals and birds with others. Among the organization guides, I am proud to have the first priority to lead groups as a guide and take them into the wilderness. I am very informative and responsible person. My company trusts me with all clients as they are ensured everyone is in safe hands
