Max lives in Brooklyn near Prospect Park (his 585-acre “front yard”) with his wife, two kids (future NYC history buffs), and a lazy cat. Max enjoys travel, photography, reading, coffee, and has recently discovered he has a knack for cooking (a discovery that was equally pleasing to his wife).
When not giving tours, she works as a muralist & painter in NYC & internationally. You can find her work in the Lower East Side, SoHo, East Harlem, Brooklyn; her mural painting has taken her all over Europe, the UK, Central America, the Carribbean & the Middle East.
She actively has gallery exhibitions all around NYC as well. Danielle also volunteers & participates in after-school art programs, weekend art programs, & loves to bring art to schools in every capacity when possible. She is also a yogi, a beach bum, & an avid reader – specifically any historical memoirs about NYC.
After high school, Ryan went on to study acting at New York University, dropped out to work at a sawmill in Montana, then eventually earned a B.A. in Writing from the Jack Kerouac School for Disembodied Poetics in Boulder, Colorado.
In 2009, he returned to New York City, and since, he has worked as an actor, handyman, audio technician, and of course, a sightseeing guide. In addition to currently working on a teaching certificate from Hunter College, Ryan has recently taken up drums, recording mash-ups, and has released two illustrated books, “The young dissenter’s handbook, vols. 1 and 2.”
