About Franklin On Foot

Franklin On Foot Owner

Visitors from ages 4 to 94 have enjoyed my guided walking tours of quaint and charming Franklin, just south of Nashville, Tennessee, for over 18 years. As a recovering lawyer, I prefer meeting people on vacation rather than in a courtroom (the worst day giving a walking tour is still better than the best day practicing law).
Visitors often tell me, "I can really tell you love what you do. " And I do! I have passion for history, and I love to share it with visitors through storytelling. I really believe there's no better way to experience a place than on a guided walking tour. . . and I hope you'll join me on mine.
Since 2012 I've also led Nashville tours. I love Nashville and you will too!

Tour Guide

I'm an author and songwriter, but with Franklin on Foot, I have the best job in the world, (and the most beautiful office). I get to meet new people every day and show them around charming Franklin. I've long been a fan of walking tours. There's no substitute for a well-informed, enthusiastic tour guide. I love watching my guests become interested in history as I tell them tales of our past, and the people who once lived here. For me, there's no better feeling than when someone tells me they had a great time on my tour. Come join me. Have I got a story for you!
