What do you enjoy most about living at Mac?
“I really enjoy how well maintained the property is. I have rented from some pretty slummy people in the past who only cared about the rent money and not about the property they owned. It is refreshing to see a company that takes pride in their properties as well as their tenants.”

What’s your biggest strength?

What’s your biggest weakness?
“I think my biggest weakness would have to be Chick Flicks, you’d be surprised by the amount of times I have seen the Notebook, and I have no shame. On a more personal level though, I tend to speak before I think, that can get you into trouble.”
Tell me about one of your favorite memories in Kansas City.

Tell us something interesting about your job, personal life, or charity work.
“I’ll try to keep this as short as possible. I work Front Desk at a Marriott on the Plaza, the best part about this job is meeting people from all over the world. The Marriott I work at is also very involved with the community and spends a good amount of time working with local charities.”
Where do you like to go in KC?
“Noir. It is an awesome little shop on 39th street that sells all sorts of amazing things. Everything from a real human skeleton to all sorts of jarred specimens and medical antiques. Shops like these are what make our city unique and we need to remember to shop local as much as we can.”
What would you say to someone looking to live in Midtown Kansas City?
“It is full of really nice people, the neighborhoods are all well-kept and great for your morning (or late night) jogs. Hyde Park has a great history and an even better community, it is a place I feel safe being in and look forward to seeing more developments. “
