DC DESIGN GUIDES
Carolyn Muraskin - Founder, Tour Guide
A former architectural designer and lover of all things brick and mortar, Carolyn left her drafting desk and started DC Design Tours so she could talk about buildings rather than draw them. She has not-so-secret crushes on Pierre L’Enfant and Montgomery Meigs, and can spot a mansard roof a mile away. Carolyn is a graduate of the University of Maryland Architecture Program and hails from the exotic suburbs of New Jersey, though the District has been her home since 2006. When not guiding, you can find Carolyn counting columns at the National Building Museum (there are 152) and traipsing through Rock Creek Park looking for Civil War remnants.
Sam Bowersox - Tour Guide
An enthusiast for architectural design and a well crafted story, Sam came to Washington DC to work with exciting history and great people. Originally from the blue grass, he graduated from Northern Kentucky University with a bachelors in history and a focus in museum studies. When he isn’t daydreaming about historic drama or talking a mile a minute, you’ll find him playing board games or reading.
Caroline Dagati - Tour Guide
From the minute she first walked through the gates of Georgetown University, Caroline fell in love with DC architecture and design. After graduating, she got a job at the only place that would honor her lifelong love of talking: the National Park Service. Ranger Caroline got to tell the story of America’s founding at Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia and the story of westward expansion in Yosemite National Park. As a tour guide in DC, she loves nothing more than showing visitors how America’s story is told in the design and architecture of Washington, DC.
