I'm an American expat in London for over 15 years. I've always been an Anglophile and moved to the U.K. because of my love of British history, culture, pop culture, music, fashion, television, and movies. I'm a bit of a geek but I guess some people would consider me to be cool. I'm a very creative, artistic person and have two Bachelor degrees; one in fashion design and the other in media production. I'm also a DJ and have worked in the music industry on and off for years. I fell in love with London the moment I stepped off the plane at Heathrow and basically became a Londoner by the time the Piccadilly line got into central London. I love the diversity of London. I love the history and architecture. I love the culture, high and low. I've lived here for over 15 years and I'm still discovering new things about it all the time. I'm a great CityUnspricted Local because no one else is as passionate about London as I am.

Hong Kong

Hi! Welcome to Hong Kong, city of contrasts! I am a French entrepreneur, photographer and avid urban explorer, installed in Hong Kong since 2011 (before that Paris and London). My work gives me exposure to countless aspects of the city and of the local culture, from how the harbour works to the history of Kung Fu or local ghost stories that you will never find in any guide... I hope to meet you soon and share the love, whether with a glass in hand at a rooftop bar, half-choked by incense in a Taoist temple, or camera in hand at the top of one of the famous eight peaks of Kowloon!

To be a Taiwanese local you'd have to wear a gold chain on your neck, chew betel nuts, and speak a good Taiwanese dialect, and we can get a good glimpse of that together! Hi, This is Ben, and I am a native here in Taipei city, and lived here for 16.5 years in total. So I know my way around no matter if you are looking for good food to eat, and good understanding of history through museums, or just want to enjoy the outdoors, I can be your local host! I am friendly, outgoing, and we can talk quite a lot of daily life in Taipei as a Taiwanese. Look forward in seeing you~
