About Us

What’s A HomeSnack?

Our goal is to combine recent data, fun videos, and thoughts about local culture into bite-sized snacks of shareable information. We call it bite-sized regional infotainment.

The Mission

We try to paint a picture of what’s happening in a region based on “Friday Night Science” — how’d you argue at a bar. To do that, we gather data from around the web to help determine a wide array of factors about where you live, things like safety, desirability, and culture.

If you’d like to see case studies of how we work with brands to drive content and eyeballs, see our Case Studies page.

Want To Snack Along?

The best part about our site is the feedback. We start a conversation, and then you add to it, creating a dialogue that’s even more current than any one site could possibly do on its own.

If you are interested in writing for HomeSnacks, think about contributing.

The Guys Behind The Snacks

Chris Kolmar

I’ve been involved in the online writing space for over four years now. I originally founded one of the most popular real estate blogs in the world and started HomeSnacks to keep that legacy going.

My research has been featured on the New York Times, Thrillist, VOX, and a host of local news.

Nick Johnson

I’ve been working in journalism and media for 20 years, covering news and sports. Additionally, my background in Public Relations has secured placements in media all over the world, including CNN, FOX News, TIME, Newsweek, the New York Times and perhaps every single radio station in the United States.

Kim Crane
Public Relations Manager

I’ve handled the public relations and media outreach with Chasing Chains Media for the last year and a half, securing media placements in several hundred websites around the world. Additionally, I’m the main contact to set up interviews regarding our data.

I’m also the Public Relations Manager for Zippia, a career resource site based in San Francisco, where I also work the media on accessing our data and staff.
