Charleston's role in the Civil War! Virtually from my Charleston home using digital resources (video and images).

Experience the Revolution in Charleston with an award-winning guide using live, video conferencing software.

If you can't travel to Charleston, I can bring Charleston to you in a live, virtual experience using video and images. This tour explores Charleston's role in the Revolution.

I've been all over Charleston shooting video and taking pictures just for your tour, so you'll see everything that we discuss. . . almost like being right here with me! I also use archival images and art. Even though we'll meet online, you can still interact with me and ask questions.

Appearances on NBC's Today Show (Tour Charleston Like a Local), Travel Channel, PBS, National Public Radio, A&E, Syfy, and Lifetime. I was also featured in United Airways' Hemispheres Magazine story, Three Perfect Days in Charleston. 5 stars on TripAdvisor, Yelp, Google, and Facebook.
