Your personal guide to Charlottesville, Virginia
Dear fellow traveler,
I have lived in Charlottesville over 40 years. It’s a great place. In that time I have worked as a computer programmer, family divorce mediator, dance caller, musician, banjo and hammer dulcimer maker, general contractor and property manager. I earned my bachelors degree in business and a masters in computer science. So, what next? Then my wife said, "Why not give ghost tours?" "OK." I said. My wife is usually right.
The result is what you see on this web site. It will no doubt continue to evolve over time. So check back every now and then.
I have had the good fortune to work with Gayle Floyd, a Master Tour Guide with 18 years experience giving tours in Washington, DC, who now lives in Charlottesville. She gave great advice when I was starting. Along with Gayle there are several other friends who join in when I need help.
We are all looking forward to meeting you and helping you enjoy this confluence of interesting people and places, past and present, we call Charlottesville.
