Since 1996 I have worked as a volunteer and as an Official Saratoga Battlefield Guide. I have offered a variety of tours not only at the Saratoga National Historical Park but also at other historical sites around the Capital District of New York State. I have expertise regarding the history of the area and am considered an expert regarding the two battles of Saratoga that occured in 1777. After three straight days of intensive testing, I was the only candidate to pass and become an Official Saratoga Battlefield Guide, also known as a licensed battlefield guide. I continue to be one of only two Official Saratoga Battlefield Guides.
