Doorways of Chicago Profiled by eATLAS
Words With Guides: Ronnie Frey
What better way is there to learn about the tours we offer, than to meet the guides who build them? Our latest installment is with Whoa!Guide Ronnie Frey, ASID, who has created seven tours for eATLAS that explore the diverse architecture that can be found throughout Chicago’s neighborhoods.
Ronnie’s tours stem from his professional training. After growing up on a farm in Indiana, he went to college to study interior design in Michigan. As part of his studies, he took classes in architecture and architecture history. Much of his career has been spent as an interior designer, but he took some time away and spent seven years in retail. During this period, he pursued a hobby of photographing doorways and Chicago architecture, posting them on his Instagram account, Doorways of Chicago. Thanks to his keen eye for detail and a pair of really good photo editing apps, he’s able to get professional caliber shots using only his iPhone.
