Our Staff

Mark is a 4th generation Somerville native. He has channeled the hardship of his community into a commitment to local activism, street outreach, and youth work (our Somerville Walking Tour shares his story in more detail). With a passion for his city, Mark strives to preserve the legacy of his dwindling community through his strong Irish tradition of storytelling. For Mark, sharing his city through educational and thought-provoking tours is both deeply personal and gratifying.

 

In contrast to Mark, Mika grew up bouncing around the world before finding herself in Boston working in the same field of youth social work as Mark. Mark gave Mika a tour, which opened her eyes and heart to the city. The stories that she heard gave her a sense of connection and community that she had never experienced before in her travels, and she decided she’s not going anywhere. With Mark’s street smarts and Mika’s business smarts, they teamed up to create Townie Tours.
