I moved to the Coachella Valley in August 1988 after many years in the Los Angeles area. Once in the desert, I expanded a love of the region. I hiked and biked across the valley college classes and self-study enhanced my knowledge of the desert and it’s environment, the geology, history of the Cahuilla Indians and history of the area In 1996 I become a professional tour guide for Desert Adventures, that opened an exciting next phase of life experience. This year I celebrated 23 years as a Desert Adventures Guide.
I started my own tour business Tallgrass Trading Co. in 2002, providing hiking tours, group sightseeing Excursions (Bus & Van Tours), seminars and group presentations
My goal is to enjoy the desert and share the history and beauty with others. To inform and entertain and to bring awareness of the little know east end of the Coachella valley. Our agriculture industry and all that we grow in this dry desert. Also the importance of the Salton Sea
