THE DISH ON THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE URBAN MANOR
What would a Park Cities business be without a family angle? Joining Kurt in running The Urban Manor is his daughter Ariel. The 24-year-old has been feeding her father ideas since she was little, brainstorming fun window concepts and helping with the execution of creative pieces for the displays.
Last year, Kurt and Ariel’s business paths crossed again when Kurt was styling shoots and Ariel was doing hair and makeup. The effortless nature of their working relationship and mutual passion of design, home goods was the impetus for The Urban Manor. The two sought out to find the perfect space and equally fitting products. The rest is history.
Kurt’s son Dylan ("the actor") will also be a part of The Urban Manor team when not auditioning or doing on-camera work.
“Not only do Ariel and Dylan offer a fresh perspective, but they also bring their own unique personalities and skills to the business,” said Kurt. “It is a great privilege to work alongside my children.”
