And they always say that I get an email is Ellen one night a luxury apartments in downtown Kansas City. And I get an email once a week in its is stacked. Debt and I say you know one you did today is is pretty awesome. Thought I'm really excited because an hour and or into spring and summer and you can roll up doors and do a lot more things outside where. The winner yolks with a lot of indoors since limits on things euphoria Nancy's so. It's getting nice the polls generates open and now it's do a lot of events that are outside London a lot of fun but during the wintertime you also did your very creative. You came over the events I mean we had did you have like an Irish. Looking dealers and our conference Tom Brady is the stuff over the reserve and he's actually he's Irish native.

Yeah and yeah you tell you you've recently to set pudding club Samie gardening class on the deck SF they don't want one I believe you know I try to reach from a broad spectrum right so one on the goals noise to focus on businesses that are downtown. And making people aware so reserve that summaries. A great little hinge on the people normally wouldn't know about. On so what's clicking the moment as relates to promote the business. I'm with the potted plant pots you know I think that people look for you donate their Cummins Saddam downtown experience this urban living. But they saw how that needs. Have enough to fill Greenspan has yet to filth all that's that suburban and more he's probably you know that would meg here and after you because she's a doors burst yeah yeah I get out yet to see things when you're down attempts in times indeed. Yet the park. I which. I tell you man there's so many dogs that they're now there there are bingaman of their lost weekend you guess who's crazy. It's you know having that rooftop. Not parked on Tom really is does that benefit 21 my residents especially but to downtown. And it's off. And when I hear parts is though train car there and they the prey logic. Art installation men in his pretty cool so when you when you start how do you put these things together I mean take us through that because. You could not so many events. I don't I don't think anyone else does it's pretty I and is it easy cannot and Charlize are lame events these Charlie hey guys are gonna go. Whenever I mean I had some evidence in some places I used to live but this or like first class. Yeah and I think they you know with my with my hospitality in and rush on background earlier lends itself. On TV allows you to do a lot of these events and these events you know they're not. Third party you know like word you know we we create them weed in some and so with the events really no way of it really is just connecting with a lot of people. Not by connect with the guys from from RK. I've read and may not do an event and morale of let's keep it may or June then so. Early assists like you know trying to cross different sections so wine tasting spears. Potted plant passes. Music is safer path and it's not just air isn't playing you know drinking on you're planning stuff that is. Yeah well it's sporting event whether it's can you talked about like the body parts of the the Petit then whether it's action news that wire it's. Number you know local entrepreneur to come in talked people whether it's cooking classes. Everything. Yet return and return it cover all all the basis and so let's lay it on to see you like every month you know we go from cute. Events. It almost instantaneously so now we're over year olds you know not that I term you know Washington. Do the same thing the same things out and I can look back at events and things that worked and we can build them upon those events and we create new events and or is not changing anything else. Do you love that air Willie is our guest on the show we're going to be negative net murderous well later on in the show.

You know all of us remember seats seat seeing the park's team into city who's really really growing and returning it and you know it's it's. Come in the last five years down by key I think can city and its office like a maker community Brighton and on the socially it's really been embrace and and the restaurants. And and it's more entrepreneurial. Ever seen and and I think a more restaurant Jersey more publicity to wreck position. How they can in this state and they all compete. You you know in this industry yeah I mean and there's really mean there's there's really in this for everything and you know I think that. No crossroads as royal Lotta competition coming and there are I feel like as far as restaurants but downtime crossroads that communities building is all comers. Along street cars source evolving going on. Hours on Thomas crossroads urban market the siding met that now I insurgency to an influx of residents and they can support those restaurants. And so one night is pre rental. The dollars has yet people move out people committed I mean it's right it's like any it's like how some very excited sold today. That is in which is cool because there's all these new people who have yet. There's like dogs parallel that's there's an article in the star recently about how many new dogs are downtown those fascinating because. There's so many residential multifamily units going up obviously one my it was built in 2015 open in 2015. Two I will be opening as well yeah your June of next year and it's been about a year from now be done. Yeah my apartment looks familiar you're right there. I know I don't know my apartment looks Tony Harris LA and it seems like every time my openness aids there's like another floor. Yeah I saw it there on on eighteen of 24 as a Jed hands him a great job and keep an on schedule and we should deal to move people and you first of next year and how winter so it Dubya how many stories on the thing Sosa one for altogether there's when he. What six and one night when five point five yeah it's when he five. About same high funny because. I'm looking in now I'm thinking like it's going to be more horizontal. Brendan and all his one night for skinny right if you look at it netted the new building two light is more outline its Diaz seems a lot more massive there's actually less use though. Oh this is the abuse her herb are bigger its mountain sort. They're one minus is different spaces. And actually when you're if you if you arm and Lisa come apart and now you can picks me offenses there's some different things you can choose from. Ma which chemical that is cool because some people like white marble some people don't like. Light hardwood floors are darker yet is that what they mean so there are things you can do that's pretty cool building is gone past ties to a at first that's gonna annoyed by and I'm like how all this traffic now it's kind of like salt on you can refute their pretty quickly. Our Tug and air Willie and Eric. A piece so what are some of the things you have planned we're at some of the tightenings are playing for residents right now solely for the for the next few months now so that's. Months Odyssey of the pulls him right open so. I don't notice I looked up when there's people out there all the time already and now already soul walls start on memorial weekend more sort sapping it with whomever service on Friday Saturday and Sunday. Wrote down power and you that we can review a big memorial we can party on Saturday. And then some guy wants to do is on creates I'm calling a last Friday's. I'm already deal last Friday reverse happy are basically at the pool lost Fridays on. June July and August and Alex are about I'm last year we did or a river sucked Aaron. It was like a Latin I have a Latin band and is just really really cool that you a lot of fun so. On doing sophomore. Poolside obviously some more stuff outside. Won't affect tacking on a loser here reverse it'll nurses that we did I have last year yeah its now this happened we only have one person fall water. And I'm idea this year actually this is actually it's a blast there is that in the summer. There isn't summer they consider open now you know after falling waters are a little bit cold but. As it's really did its as you know can be a good thing activity do you buy yourself on or with a couple. I was just there a 510 and fifteen mar. It's just have you with a signal to galleries news or fire Tamika. I think five B try to months ago yet acted these physical activities to death. We have some some physical activity is marvelous tool will keep aligned with our wine tastings. Indeed relevant either royals in the death of ex generals and then is this Thursday as a way to amend wall or give it a group office where he can city and antsy or else and I don't want to arrowhead it was zero degrees my it was the cause him mere half game via a piece of carpet to stand up thank yeah. CL kinds of things going on and you know you try to be more innovative and creative every year you'll yet we I mean that's that's the goal as soon as always says it's improved than. Learned of from things that we've done the past and I think we're really hitting your stride and no room listening to people on what they wanna do and trading these different different events and you although all it is the events are different you know main purpose is both unique and it's a place that common and to be residents and to build a community. Let's think about that because I think there's a misnomer about one night at least when I tell me when there guess they think that it's all. Young people. No not really saw people and I can tell you this it is I've seen families I've seen professional athletes I've seen retirees I've seen. You know young couples I've seen single PI mean is everything it is it is. It's really not that young it's not known as I mean it's executed mature crowd. We know what I love. And I think you even within building you you can make big what you want it didn't you know if you wanna if you don't be harmful scene and the junior on a full season if you're just come to advance. You know it's really what you make of it if you want him to view your part and the apartments are beautiful. And a sign that your outside is it is the you know in this summer's big party plays and except yesterday you seriously when one night was an open that the poll was more party place a pretty worked it full were tame now yes so we know we've tried to you know we don't have DJ is now I chatted. It's reversed by the band's reggae bands and Latin bands and on to slow up more culture and a school. One thing all seed they were talking there willing with one might look for apartments as you decent thing for mentioned getting out there and kayaking and seeing the nature one. Mince mentioned off fair we re talking about partnership you'd do bill with the national d.s yeah residents. Yes so again you I think one when residents of new downtown in creating this urban lifestyle. I think it's so important for them to you how this these suburban Claude is are available. So we teamed up with the national are that the d.s golf club and paid a special membership for one not residents. And you know it was something that I wanted to put out there but it's really taken off we have. Seventy. Residents sign up now and it's really like it spill are really tight net community comment with and it's often. There's guys just going all the time golfing is like two or three groups and you offer for us immensely you were in them and they use is amazing and NN's rusty builds and builds retention. Or one night. Because you discuss membership view search create these bombs residents and you sort you resent leases. And and I I'm a member of the abuse that and I views that I've. I charting a third night just like quieter there Hillary's men's league is fun there's over a hundred guys that plane that the it's amazing Thursday night it. People I knew people solely on the politician. So I walked in that aren't you always thought about until I'm out of my house house legislature might have a dog that's six years ago guy I don't say that a library that's great people are so nice of me now I group up there so yeah. It's a great community we're gonna have on the president. Of them at some point here this is even William and Mary brother to me on the national the other day but it's just a great facility. It is kind of therapeutic go up there and and playing golf in even if you know there's two different types you play with 45 guys that are. Little more robust almost have a few more cocktails are Brazilian you can play with you grew up there by yourself picking up there with a friend any. It is remake of habits a beautiful course of the innocent fifteen minutes from downtown which makes a communion is isn't a private course but I think. Prod or Republicans are close ones in downtown which receive communion deathly is. And also it's either simmers proxy for Dinara who was side. It's amazing what you having usage which is crazy to me I've been good art yup there's maize and oh yeah I would sign up and cares club an after dinner which is amazing and so that's part of the deals you know if you have dinner yeah. Very cool air Willie is in my gas tees with one light luxury apartments. Air what else is going on I mean you've been a man about to anything you've been to recently that you think is literally cools you. One of my favorite places dollars core Reno supper club and tasting room. You like it's amazing he was on the show about a month. Margaret Ellen yeah has him on the right may be yet they why might my music or and I and I am I and I'm a full dinner experience but all of them are and have a drink in stocks and the fuse is this perfect every time the army announced the live music it's monitor prices. Should defeat is good yes it's Tuesday night and I mean we can I think we we kind of expected that and you know what I look for him and a lot of restaurants is more than just dining experience more than this dude and of course you know sort of a you know kind of touched on this note with like music and on the south service music now. And these have been there my other favorite my if Pirillo he's our bumper imperial. And there simply that's the crossroads yet answered debt ten challenger and brought this upon our room 39 and just open it by about six months ago. And so defeatist casual but it's the same quality that you get it in there and I'm which is it's always amazed. And I go for breakfast old time when a mission farm through meetings have meetings on the earth my parents communication gaps so one might I feral her imperial its other than to bet.

I decided to take the summer off last year to just kind of like rehab it. You know go for walks you physical therapy just like spend the day it's getting better who which ended up being a really good thing for me. Yeah right that time off gave me some clarity. And also kind of taught me how to elect of myself first and only it's you know. When you have kids or even for just like busy. And running a business is like maybe forget. So you gotta give you don't have that. Time you know you're always just on the news and you happen. You take their four. Wherever vacation you know that doesn't happen you know we're doing that now Iowa is so this break kind of refocusing. It's Jack in recent times is just kind of like. Just focus on myself Earl little island you know it when it came around to the fallen it was time for me to second back to work. A certain having people send me projects and extremely cool stuff that I would've been very excited about that as Alex slot things that way like you. Un well cannot quite ready you and meanwhile answered painting again which is something I've always. Yes I've done it since high school and well and I didn't talk about them yeah. Yeah I'm you know it's on the side of sold work occasionally and showed occasionally. I never actually believed I can make a living doing it then and something about like. That time off just made me ask myself like while and I do you and so I just you know I just decided it was time for a new chapter and so I did like the absolutely craziest thing you can do then decide to do. Come full time artist yes yes you're here answer rampages mega mix. Photos of all with so few done then. What not and it's pretty cool so so KC decided to do it knew what happens I mean you have to find. We used our pinning everything in the opening online and you get some of the buys for the. Does that work well it's it's a little bit of experimentation everywhere so you know I've been doing this for about six months now and it's kind of like. Tried this and see if that works you know do you work of different sizes registered working really large which is cool because I really like we're in regards. And yes. You know and just networking meeting new people trying to get my work out there in front of people sound. Alone is there a Missouri a guidebook of places for us to go in the art community here. So like and act like there is for every other profession if there isn't somebody knows please offense any advantage at SFO. So you could end up yet Oka a I just cut tapping the contact Terri had a mean in your emails again at. I think I figured out what that Europe to I'm pennant you know I'm doing few different it's. Shows and Boca festivals he's our guy. Or those like my did the strawberry swing in December which is such a great. You know maker Faire in Kansas City how. I was off some analysis like a great way to elect pushed me out of my conference on a little bit in my. Meg go like show your work there right that's except one like search showing work publicly in getting feedback and. So that was great that kind of got me started and then you know I've been doing. Commission work for people which helps to and it's like keep a little more steady flow of income mean which you know the reality of being an artist you have to. Figure out a way to make money premiere where it. Which is and how does that work for the commissions that aegis. Talked people you know our browser has that gets kind of like started in this circle of friends and family and it's kind of moving into the next circle which is kind of how worked uninspired first business. You know you can't just talk to all the people you know and. And he's friends. It's pretty focus I mean this is an understatement. Yeah you're you're you're worth some of the others that he did you know it's you deal with thing yet with a very Indian design work yet and I can just show a picture so this is yet it is these reported grasp yet. And so. What are some of the avenue as you talk about the shows you've gone to have to house the congress. I've beaten them. Just by setting up a shop amendments I and ends. May let families are invited some other what's yeah mine I have a society six page okay well which is street. Because you can. Silk prints of your work. And an on demand through them in the cool thing is that they produce the prints. And then ship them out for you in and you get a commission often. The sales. So that has been really cool to have kind of a smorgasbord of work over there in a smorgasbord of work and violence today. Right. We'll get an academy here. Inspiration in your creativity and in what campaigning in the next exhibit tells about. Tells about kind of mutants here at minister pulled out. Well for us in the states let's just go on TV city inspiration here that's ever happened before a peso hit a don't know here's my question so you can't do these take free to do so vice CU. OK I wanna obtaining. The style or whatever something yeah and you looks like you put a lot of effort is this is not placating. Something we've seen other art fairs and town so how long does this take. You do that. I usually give myself a week but we do appease the does that mean I'm working you know forty hours on a piece necessarily. Sometimes I'll sit down and oh come out and or hours and but usually I give myself a weeks that I can work. Every day for a few hours on it and then you know kind of simple way. And they come back to the next day with fresh eyes and and see you like OK in going to change the colors or the texture. So I usually will try to come back to it three or four times to finish and then I'll just know when it's done. But I have to Kelli tell myself to stop click. Done you're done it's done now is it and CDs on campuses. It's pen some canvassed some on board. On some on chip board it's kind of like started out with like whatever I had laying around its. But I have started working on campus more because they can work archer in on board and what is very. Cents a mile egg. We're dug in a magnet hamburger with says meg makes our dot com. This is Cali writing and yeah there is when you sit down write some thing. Sometimes you can knock down b.'s focus yourself and sometimes. It takes forever exact so we. You're hike in no use Kennedy wake up in the morning. And star pain and money to break us you know sometimes. Actual. Painting part been like leading up to the pain in part is usually it takes on its okay so it's kind of funny some days on needs them like. Go for a walk in the and then like have a great. Once and then maybe ticket my payment app and the Medicaid. It tooth and like then I can paint and then I paint something it takes on our. I don't going for walks in the woods and Hayward do you letting kids. Oh well everywhere guy there are ways around where you bone you know relatively close. I love going to the arboretum that is that what they like a happy place was young and it is. Wooded. Sanctuary again that's on its and it 179 and the valley parkway jet. And which has actually not that far it seems far but it's sexist and 179 yeah I think willow. I thought that you and I are side that. It's just it's beautiful flowers but they have trails at the woods that are very. Woody and this TSA so it's a great place to kind of go out and get served really far away from everything. You know I like to college and getting weird in the woods. Got up. I did it checked that plays out never even heard of it's beautiful. Sounds like its list to go for a review yeah and you can go like it's some you know mulch trail seeking Iran there. Good to trailer and I like to lock out there. Just you know commune with nature Malone. Worth magnet number meg makes our dot com gonna come back after the break talk about some river work and also talk about two affliction she's working on.

So yeah you know like we talked that I spent a lot of time out in the woods and there's just like something about the. Woods here in the midwest that is.

You know battling mountain brook click here I feel like it's a little more like angled Massey moon that something about that like. Not literally but that comes into the way that I paints and you know the mark making its view trying to make it very. Loose and and a free sound that is you know kind of prominent tea.
