Organizer No Illusions Tours

Organizer of Buffalo Lit

Buffalo is my home.  It is my passion. I've lived in and around Buffalo all my life and every day I learn something new about this city.  

Since I was young I've valued stories and the way that people are connected through the craft of telling them.  I believe that you can learn a great deal about a person or a place by the stories that they choose to tell.  For a long time the stories people have told about Buffalo were of a dying rust belt city with nothing left to give the world.  

But Buffalo is much more than snow, decay and loss. And in recent years more and more people are showcasing the old and creating new, strong and beautiful stories about Buffalo.

Our goal, at No Illusions Tours is to add to those new stories by breaking down the history of Buffalo itself. 

We seek to tell our city’s story through different voices from the past, from the Burning of Buffalo more than 200 years ago to new art and innovation from the last decade.

Our very first stories at No Illusions will be told through the voices of remarkable women who have lived and worked here, who have helped Buffalo and in many cases the rest of the world to grow, as they grew.  This series of tours, Buffalo's Favorite Daughters, will be our very first look at Buffalo's Story.
