ResoluteKC’s 30 under 30: Richard Shorthair

Richard Shorthair is a 26 year old community college graduate who is moving out of his parents house and into the new OneLightKC apartment building.


Master Negotiator 

Richard was able to convince his parents to take out a second mortgage so he could live in a luxury apartment. Currently Richard is unemployed but optimistic because he has friends whose parents are well connected.

Future Opportunities

Richard thinks that the real opportunity will be in 2016 “when pot gets legalized in Kansas City.” Not only does Richard have friends whose parents have connections, but he also had deep roots in the cannabis culture in Kansas City.

Love for Kansas City

Richard said he loves Kansas City all his friends and family are here. “The only time I’ve left the city was to go to Cabo for Spring break”
