Renee was born and raised in Uruguay, of German parents. She fell in love with New York the very first time she visited, during a school year trip. As soon as she could she came to live here. Renee worked at UNICEF (the United Nations Children’s Fund) for several years, during which time, whenever she could, she helped friends and colleagues who moved to New York to settle in the city and show them the sights. Renee has been guiding tours of New York City for the last 20 years, making tourists fall in love with New York just like she did the first time.
