Description

The Space

The front door opens to 46th street. If you turn right, you'll hit the Nelson Atkins Museum. If you turn left you'll hit the Country Club Plaza (hundreds of Galleries and Restaurants), if you walk forward you'll hit the Kemper Museum of Modern Art. Each destination is within one block of your front door.

This is a company apartment. We use it mostly as a place to let our Artists have a place to stay if they want to come visit us in Kansas City.

Neighborhood
75% of our neighbors are 18-25yo students from the Kansas City Art Institute, UMKC, and Rockhurst. Remainder are post grad/professional types. Not many families on the block. Only two I can think of. The same group of guys owns most of the buildings on the block. One of them is always around - they're really nice people, always available. It's a really special block - lots of character.

The only classes I went to in high school were Jazz band, music theory, and chess club. If I had graduated I would have been 2nd from the bottom of my class. Something about being told to be somewhere at 7:40 (AM) everyday seemed so ridiculous. College was cool though - I have a B.A. in Political Science.

I started a company called PicPhix (sounds like Pic Fix). We created a /iPhone app that makes it impossible to take a bad picture. How you ask?

See if you can figure it out. ;)

"PicPhix is such an interesting idea, it's so simple that you wonder why no one has thought of it before, but PicPhix is first." - Chris Bernard, Chief Experience Evangelist, Microsoft

Put that project on hold and we're now in development on an app to solve a very big problem for Airbnb and make Airbnb hosts lot more money. :) If you're an Airbnb host, ping me to be one of the first to know when we open for testing. This app will make your life so much easier.

Wr raised money to start start a photo editing company but became airbnb enthusiasts accidentally. We saw a very big opportunity to solve a very big problem for the airbnb community. We use whatever excess cash we make from our bookings to cover development costs.

In terms of guests - don't really care too much. Special preference to artists, musicians, or entrepreneurs. The more verified you are the better - have something about yourself in your profile - connect it to some of your social networks. Just nice to know that people staying at your place are connected and have a story. ...and if you think you can drink at a steady enough pace, you're welcome to join us for dinner or drinks (where ever we happen to be).
