Carolyn Muraskin is the founder of tour agency DC Design Tours, offering historical tours of Washington DC, focused on architecture, urban planning, and design. Carolyn and her team conduct tours across the city, including the National Mall, Embassy Row, Capitol Hill, Adams Morgan, Georgetown, Historic Anacostia, and more. DC Design Tours has partnered with a diverse range of organizations to bring the design of the District to a larger audience, including the National Trust for Historic Preservation, Boston University, Rhodes Scholars, Brookings Institute, and the Discovery Channel. Carolyn is a graduate of the University of Maryland School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation. As a former architectural designer, Carolyn worked on mixed-use, historic restoration, master planning, and retail projects in the Washington area. She left her drafting desk behind in 2015 and founded DC Design Tours so she could talk about buildings rather than draw them. Carolyn lives in DC’s Cleveland Park neighborhood (so named for former resident and President Grover Cleveland) with her husband, 4-year-old son, and cat. She has a passion for all things brick and mortar.
