Local businesses are truly the backbone of our East Cobb community. And for the past 26 years, the EAST COBBER has had a strong partnership with the local business community of which we are part. Since we are not publishing a May edition, the EAST COBBER wants to continue to remind readers of our advertisers’ long-standing relevance to the East Cobb community by posting their business profiles on our social media platforms.

Coming from 20+ years in large corporate assignments, I wanted to own my own small business, where I could develop long lasting relationships and make a difference in peoples lives.

Building relationships with my community and serving others. I have lived in East Cobb for 29 years.

Working every day in the office, sheltered alone (surprisingly busy!). Walking every day with my Wife and doing landscape work at my home. Re-watching favorite movies like James Bond and Mama Mia!

What are your hobbies/interests outside of your business?
My Grandchildren! Playing, swimming, projects, scavenger hunts, crafting…hanging out. They are a remarkable form of energy and are so fun to be around.
