Craig has been doing tours of San Francisco since he was a teenager.
He dreamed of being an architect in high school; didn’t have the math ability, his adviser told him.
He did however, fulfill other dreams; to be an actor, sculptor, artist, teacher, tour director & tour guide.
He’s done a few sculpture/art/fountain walking tours for the Guild in the past. Six years ago, the distinguished Bancroft Library-UC Berkeley, asked him to do a series of architecture walking tours for it’s members.
They were a success and Craig now wants to do this tour for the Guild.
