About Kris

Hi I'm Kris.

Travel enthusiast exploring the world, with a healthy appetite of exploring cities and a knack for discovering the local hangouts.

Have you ever gone on a city break, bought a city guide or checked out online sources like Timeout or Culture trip, only to find that the information is outdated? Ever stumbled across an authentic restaurant or bar where all the locals gather? Perhaps you reached out to an old mate who lived there to give you a few pointers on which neighbourhoods to check out... bypassing the tourist areas with a Starbucks or McDonalds in every corner.

So I'm currently working on creating a neighbourhood guide for every city, focusing on local neighbourhoods for that local experience. (Check out @trip_hoods on Instagram) A user content generated platform curated by locals themselves.

So how about Spotted by locals, Trip Scouts or Wallpaper City Guides? Yep, I've done all the research and this idea is well and truly different. Happy to chat with the right person about the USP.

I'm now looking for the right developer to jump on board to help me create an MVP. Prototype at the ready. Just need to develop and start testing.

Full disclosure... I'm a Pho fanatic, music enthusiast, and champion the small wins in life.

Please get in touch if you're interested!
