Kris Matela

Host, Asia Specialist

Born and raised in Poland during the Cold War and behind the Iron Curtain fueled Kris' need to escape the harsh reality and discover new places, people, and cultures. A few decades later, Kris has traveled to 87 countries and uncovered twice as many destinations, many in Asia, where he lived for almost two years. There, his degree in the health industry landed him a position as a consultant for a luxury spa. During his time in Thailand, Kris fell in love with its people, culture food and amazing scenery.

Kris is based in Orlando Florida and has become a full time travel consultant, catering to the discerning guests in search of bespoke journeys, such as the ones Art In Voyage customizes.
