I love my job and I never get tired of hosting tours because every guest on every tour brings a unique experience.  We laugh and talk and by the end of the tour, I feel like I’ve known this person my whole life!  Plus being a part of downtown Cincinnati, OH and Covington KY is so exciting right now.  The revitalization of old neighborhoods, the variety of fun new restaurants, beautiful parks, the ease of the streetcar, the picturesque river front are just a few of the reasons to plan a visit.



I love Cincinnati and I love good food! We moved downtown from the suburbs to experience the renaissance occurring in OTR and Downtown. I’m very involved in the Downtown Residents Council and I love telling our guests about the latest news, tips & openings. Riverside Food Tours allows me to share my passion for our city’s history as well as great food choices available in the area. My favorite meal is the short rib ravioli at Sotto (YUMMY!) and my favorite place is Over the Rhine in Washington Park and Findlay Market. 


I am a proud resident of northern Kentucky, sometimes known as ” the south side of Cincinnati”. I am the guy that friends call when they need to know where to take out-of-town guests or what new restaurants to try. Because of my interest in and love of Cincinnati, years ago I created the board game, ‘Queen City Trivia”. I have also been an extra in numerous films shot in the area. What I love most about the “Top 10 Tour” is that it is like “Cincinnati 101”. You learn so much and see all the city’s top sites while enjoying iconic Cincinnati foods.


I am a retired educator who has a passion for the local history, arts and food of the Greater Cincinnati area. Although I’ve lived in Kentucky my whole life, I’m spending a lot more time in Cincinnati volunteering downtown. Since Cincinnati is such a foodie city, I’ve also made it my mission to dine out more! Riverside Food Tours is the perfect way to blend my passions and allow me to share my “new discoveries” with lots of friendly like minded folks. 


I am a proud Cincinnatian that has enjoyed living in other parts of the country and have twice moved back. It is a pleasure to share the story of Cincinnati along with the downtown architecture and the dynamic renaissance of the OTR. Being able to include the many diverse tasting options that Cincinnati has to offer completes the experience. I might add that after 40 years in radio, including “WKRC Cincinnati”, I have always prided myself on delivering an interesting presentation and it will be my goal to make everyone’s tour a memorable experience.


Whenever I travel, the first thing I do is take a food tour. It’s genius! You get a smattering of local history while you enjoy regional specialties. Bonus– you get a better idea of the places you want to return to during your trip! When the opportunity arose for me to become a food tour guide in Cincinnati, I was thrilled. I am a native Cincinnatian and a Certified Tourism Ambassador for the city. I love hosting the Over-the-Rhine Cocktail Tour and welcome the chance to share the spirit and flavors of the Queen City with guests.


I love traveling and making new connections, especially since I’m not originally from Ohio. Exploring the state and delving into Cincinnati’s rich history has been a passion of mine. As a librarian, I’ve relished uncovering the innovative spirit and numerous “firsts” associated with this remarkable region. I take great joy in sharing my enthusiasm for discovering new facts and “aha” moments with participants on Riverside Food Tours. Interacting with new acquaintances, exchanging stories, and highlighting the historical landmarks of this captivating city bring me immense pleasure.


Cincinnati is my hometown and I love sharing its history, telling stories of the past, and introducing local foods to guests. I began exploring the restaurants, bars, museums, and beautiful parks when we moved downtown after raising our family in the suburbs. Becoming a Riverside Food Tour guide is a natural transition from my career as an educator. I love meeting the fun and interesting guests as they get a taste of Cincinnati foods, our rich history, and the warm hospitality of the Queen City.


My wife Laura and I created Riverside Food Tours in the spring of 2016. We enjoy living in downtown Cincinnati and being so close to sporting events, concerts, great food and the city parks. As a tour guide, I really enjoy meeting visitors and answering questions about what to do and see. I also enjoy sharing the history, pointing out the beautiful architecture, the Ohio River, parks, street art murals and of course the food. We’re fortunate to have so many family owned local restaurants. They add a lot of fun and variety to our tours.
