Did You Know?
Brainsnack Tours is the "brainchild" of Michael Corcoran, CTG, and his wife Kate, who have lived in Chicago since 1987.
Michael, with experience as both a step-on and walking tour guide, developed his love and expertise for Chicago's history and architecture when pursuing his B.A from DePaul University. He combines his experience as a writer, storyteller, and professional stand-up comedian with his tour-guide expertise to provide informative and tailored tours infused with dry wit.
Kate has degrees in history and anthropology, but actually works as the director of research and information systems (computer geek, for short) for a small national non-profit association based in Chicago. An avid amateur digital photographer, Kate is solely to blame for the photos on this site and for the Website design.
