Kurtis found his graffiti addiction from drawing in his fellow student’s books, on teachers’ desks, and the boys’ and girls’ bathrooms of his school in Pittsburgh, PA. Nearly the same time discovering crews and artists, Sesk, Seek, Krush, NSF and TimeBomb he felt compelled by the fades, the contrasts, 3D effects, the Icy Blues and Ultra Whites, the fatcaps, the wildstyles with the crisp and solid outline finishes, to take his art further. 10 years later in Brooklyn, New York where he lived another 10+ years, he found himself doing the same thing. Now living in Berlin, he spends his life creating music under the name KRTS with well-known and successful indie-label, Project: Mooncircle. Tour guide by day, Graffiti writer and musician by night.

Jake is from the UK and one of our most experienced and engaging tour guides. After a career as a touring and recording musician in a rock band Jake found himself in Berlin and working in the legendary Tacheles art house up until it´s closure. He´s a wonderful story teller, published author and chief English writer for the local football side FC Union in his other jobs. A colorful character with a warm and friendly persona. He´s one of the best guides you could hope for to take a tour with, through the streets of urban Berlin.
Nichole is a huge fan of the local punk culture and dinosaurs.
She also happens to be a chef and believes that Berlin is a hidden gem of a food city. Something she is more than happy to give recommendations about.
When she’s not entertaining tourists with her passionate rants about gentrification and the city´s music scene you will find her throwing elbows in a moshpit or shopping for dinosaur figurines to add to her collection.
