Leo Knight
Founder

Leo started life as an Electrical Engineering student at the University of Tennessee. After graduating, he went to work for Allen-Bradley living in Cleveland, OH and Milwaukee, WI. Leo came up with the idea for a Neighborhood Tech Shop after one of his tenants (Sam McCamy) moved out of 1202 Kenesaw Ave in 2010. Partner, Mark Armstrong, brought the idea to life as Neighborhood Nerds and created our platypus mascot, Gizmo. Leo married his high school sweetheart, Debbie and they have four sons. Leo strives to keep the royal commandment every day, Love your Neighbor as your self!
