We had the good fortune of connecting with Kennedy Borner and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kennedy, what led you to pursuing a creative path professionally?
I pursued an artistic or creative career from watching my older sibling; my brother and how his career developed and grew over time. He’s very successful and accomplished, and it didn’t hurt that my mother kept pushing me to get into becoming a model.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
My art/creativity is modeling and telling a story through the face, body movements and expressions within that picture. What I have learned throughout the days is that minimal is the best and most memorable way to reach out to different people across different walks of life. The challenges that I have faced I have overcame with patience and through god walking along side of me giving me strength to keep pushing forward. I want people to know about me as a person and as a brand that being yourself is okay. Being different is okay. Standing in your self worth and self confidence is perfectly okay within this society today, and just living life to the fullest because you only have one life to live.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
So shoutout to my friends that I have been hanging out with now more so than ever because I wasn’t really an outgoing person. But the day would probably start off with us getting ready putting on some music to get the vibe going. I would probably say the places I have been to go out and have a fun time would be in the areas between Deep Ellum, Bishop Arts and Uptown in terms of going out meeting ppl, eating, drinking and vibing. But doing more so on the adventure and activities I like to play games like arcade style, VR, Escape Rooms, Bowling, Golfing (Mini or regular). Those are to name quite a few things because there is so much to do in Dallas that myself have yet to fully explore and I’m just along for the ride.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Most importantly my family especially my mother and her encouragement, my brother Mikey Kravitz, he’s been where I was when I first started out and he has always been an shoulder that I can lean on.

Carlos Vincent – my mentor ❤️ him and he has been a great asset to me.

Annie Adams – she saw something in me and she was the very 1st person to put me in front of a camera.

There’s so many I’d like to name, but these few have been by my side since the beginning.
