About the speaker
Born and raised in Hawaii. Chentell Shannon moved to Chicago to pursue a degree in Community Art, Urban Studies and Ceramics (2009-2013). She was later convinced by her now husband to give Kansas City a chance post graduation. After a year, Chentell has found Kansas City to be a place uniquely supportive and accessible for both artists and entrepreneurs. It is in this context that she began developing the first Convivial products in 2013, quit her job in 2014 and has been running to build the company ever since.

Gorgeously designed rooms and suites help define the Crossroads experience. But more, this is where historic and modern meet. Where people from all over and around the corner come together. The energy, creativity and passion that define the city and neighborhood can call this place home. Crossroads, just like Kansas City, is at its core about community and connection. At every turn, we tapped local artists, designers and purveyors to share their talent and creativity with us in places public and private.
