Kenny Bump

Stereotypes are made to be broken... and conformed with. Kenny hails from the Dirty South, aka the Dirty Dirty or, simply, Atlanta. He ventured out here for a restart in life. What better place than a city linked mythologically to resurrection? Kenny has a penchant for all things creative. Art, music, homemade gin and tonics, architecture, writing and sweet tea are all important aspects of the world of Kenny Bump. You will catch him strolling Downtown for that evasive perfect meal, or to just to mingle with the peeps at a First Friday. If you want to know anything about the stereotypes of the South, the magnificence of grits or why sweet tea is a viable resource, then Kenny is your guy. He currently resides in the Garfield district.
