Silo Modern Farmhouse

 It has been a hot minute since I last posted about a new eatery.  Thanks to Joyal Marketing my tastebuds and I were treated to an array of samplings to Lenexa’s newest destination, Silo Modern Farmhouse.  This new upscale restaurant which is lead by Executive Chef, Laura Favela (pronounced Fah-vay-luh) is located in Lenexa’s private Canyon Farms Golf Club. … Continue Reading

Sunset Hill

 I was so thrilled when the opportunity arose for me to redesign the hearth room in one of Kansas City’s most beautiful neighborhoods, Sunset Hill.  Unfortunately I was  not able to take “before” pictures of this project but the “afters” speak for themselves.  To describe a bit of the “before” there was a huge “vanilla” sectional, … Continue Reading

Happy 1 Year Anniversary The Monarch Bar

On March 28, 2017 I was in line for the Bubbly and Bowties pre-party for Kansas City Fashion Week with my date for the evening (HI, Theresa!).  We were standing in line when I looked behind me and noticed this sexy couple.  Of course, I had to introduce myself.  Lo and behold this attractive duo … Continue Reading

Christmas In July

“Chestnuts roasting on an open fire, Jack Frost nipping at your nose, yule-tide carols being sung by a choir” …oh wait it’s July not December!  July has arrived and is now on it’s way out.  Before it ends there is an unofficial holiday that I would merrily like to bring to your attention.  With the help … Continue Reading

Black Dirt

I am going to be the first one to admit that I have never been to Justus Drugstore-A Restaurant in Smithville Missouri.  However, I have no need to fret because Chef Jonathan Justus and his lovely wife/counterpart, Camille Eklof have opened their premiere 5000-square foot farm-to-table restaurant Black Dirt in South Plaza, Kansas City.  I believe it was … Continue Reading

Baby, It’s Cold Outside!

It is time to face reality, the clocks have fallen back and the extremely cold temperatures and snow have embraced us with their icy arms.  So I thought I would give a little inspiration to both my male and female viewers with a little help from model, Noelle Manica.  Let’s be honest, getting dressed in … Continue Reading

A Tartan Holiday

As the holiday season comes to an end I thought I would add one more post before 2018 begins.  This particular shoot was a fun and fashionable collaboration with Wilson Lighting. Essentially I turned my festive cross-hatched patterned outfit into a chic space using furnishings and accessories from their website.  Think, fashion meets interiors.  As … Continue Reading

Hello, MOTO!

I was very much looking forward to this blog post and photo shoot!  I had the distinct honor of shooting with the fabulous Noelle and we were able to shoot on her husband’s kick-ass 2017 Fatboy Low Harley Davidson motorcycle. I have always described myself as a rough-around-the-edges dapper hombre.  So being able to use a motorcycle as … Continue Reading

Fall Has Arrived

As I am typing away on this beautiful 71 degrees’ day (October 27th) at 4:35 pm I start to notice that the temperature dropped a bit.  I take a look at my weather app on my phone and notice that it will be a high of 43 degrees tomorrow!  Looks like summer has officially lost it’s … Continue Reading
