"I quickly felt the magical, yet laid-back island vibe Key West offers and opted to relocate there. The Secret Food Tour stands out as his favorite tour guide role to date. However, I love to bring in historical facts and interesting tidbits that include information on Ernest Hemingway, President Harry S. Truman and everything else that makes the island truly unique."
