Who We Are
Kris Hansen – Managing Editor/Photographer
A long time forum member, Kris joined the AudiWorld Staff in mid-2005. Kris is completely obsessed with Audi, having owned various examples of the brand since 1988 with a 1984 Audi 5000s. Never one to constantly trade cars, Kris also tends to keep his cars for as long as possible, usually driving them till they won’t drive any longer. As an avid DIY’er, he refuses to let other people work on his cars, instead preferring to do as much on his own as possible. This tendency is the reason for getting involved with AudiWorld in the first place, and it continues to this day. He’s also a semi-pro photographer, occasionally freelancing for local news papers, and photographing weddings and other events. Kris resides in Vermont, where he enjoys playing with his New Holland tractor and Sthil chainsaws, Honda ATV, and 2 kids.
Kris and his wife own a 2006 Audi A4 2.0T Avant quattro, and a 2011 VW Tiguan 4Motion.
