I’ve lived on both coasts, from Rhode Island to California, but over the years, Cleveland has truly become my home. I love the charm and walkability of our older, established neighborhoods and suburbs, and explore them all – east and west! After a career in advertising, I took a detour and opened Sweet Moses, an old-fashioned soda fountain and treat shop in Cleveland’s Gordon Square Arts District. Named after the city’s founder, Moses Cleaveland, the throwback shop serves up homemade ice cream and confections with a little bit of history. One of the most unexpected rewards of owning Sweet Moses has been becoming closely involved with the revitalization of the neighborhood.
I’ve served on the board of the Gordon Square Arts District, and I am a founding member of Detroit-Shoreway’s economic development committee. I strive to make supporting our neighborhood arts organizations, charitable organizations, and schools an important part of the shop’s mission.
After raising two sons in Rocky River, my wife and I are heading back east again as empty-nesters and moving Little Italy, one of our favorite destinations when we first dated. While you won’t find us at Mama Santa’s every Friday night eating pizza before heading to bars in the Flats – which was our typical 1989 routine – you’ll probably still find us in one of Cleveland’s many great independently-owned restaurants. Chances are if it’s a nice day, we’ll be on their patio.
With my oldest son now taking over much of the day-to-day operations of Sweet Moses, I have the time to help others discover all the culture, arts and, of course, ice cream in Northeast Ohio in my role at Executive Arrangements. And when I have a long weekend that’s not already filled with Cleveland-centric activities, I take advantage of one of many convenient, direct flights to our second home in Naples, Florida.
