Choose something simple like a few bright colorful pendant lights from Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting to update any room. 262 Buckhead Ave. NE. Ferguson.com

Find inspiration for your kitchen or bath project at the new Cambria Gallery at Buckhead Atlanta, where homeowners and pros alike can experience more than 120 beautiful designs, full-size slabs and expertly curated kitchen and bath vignettes. The beautiful showroom was designed and built by Buckhead’s Glazer Design & Construction, Marni Ratner of Studio M Interiors and architect Kuo Diedrich. 3096 Roswell Rd. NW.

Take advantage of that empty space under your stairs. Judy Mozen of Handcrafted Homes designed a special wine cellar for her clients in Buckhead, tucking it artfully underneath the staircase. A custom steel and glass door by The Farber Company was a splurge the homeowners love. HandcraftedHomes-Inc.com

mother of five and former school teacher, Buckhead’s Michelle Hodgson has full hands and an even more full heart. In 2008, Michelle founded Children Helping Children (CHC), a nonprofit developed in honor of her infant son, Cole, who passed away the prior year. The mission of CHC is to encourage children to identify their unique, personal gifts and find ways to use those gifts in community service. Ongoing projects of CHC include assembling and donating “Be Well Bears” to children in local hospitals and the Little Hands, Big LOVEFEST—a teen-led, service-based festival that shares inspiration and community fun.

A PLATFORM for their ideas

Children Helping Children encourages kids of all ages to define what makes them special. “We believe every child has a gift. We call this a ‘light,’ because a gift is something you give away, but a light is something you share.”

providing a platform for their ideas.” The ideas generated by these young people have been the catalyst for projects benefitting other nonprofits, such as Kate’s Club, Camp Sunshine, Atlanta Mission, StandUp For Kids, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and Emmaus House. The 2016 junior board has just begun to focus on this year’s Big LOVEFEST, to be held October 30 at Park Tavern in Piedmont Park. While the kids plan the project, there’s still a need for adults to join in and support their programming through corporate and personal sponsorships that fund their missions. That spirit of loving energy now extends to another program Michelle’s developed, called SHE, for Spiritual Healing Energy. The SHE mission encourages women of all faiths, backgrounds and beliefs to come together in support of each other. “One of my best friends and I had conversations about how we could connect and help women in our country,” Michelle explains, “to create a space where it was safe to be vulnerable and talk about real issues.” The first event was held in May. “Women from all over Atlanta came together and spoke their intentions, did a beautiful sunset yoga class overlooking Piedmont Park and ended the night with dinner, wine and a collective sharing in an energy circle we created. We’ve had females from all over reach out asking how they can be part of this beautiful group.” Around town, Michelle enjoys perusing the Phoenix & Dragon bookstore and is really excited about the enhancement of Chastain Park. She counts Souper Jenny, Aria, Horseradish Grill and BarTaco among her favorite places to meet up with friends for a bite. my

om Sullivan has welcomed Atlantans on local radio and television for years. In fact, he started as a teen, landing a plumb on-air gig right after high school. He became part of the incredibly popular Star 94 radio morning show and then moved into view as a TV host. His career thrives off of his infectious personality and zany enthusiasm, but he maintains a clear perspective on the true measures of “success.” Tom recalls, “It wasn’t until I lost both my radio job in 2008 and a TV job in 2010 that I realized those jobs didn’t define me. That period of growth was huge for me and I am grateful for the life transition.”

When life changed for me in 2010, I felt drawn to serve.” Tom was introduced to the locally based SERV International team and began traveling on mission trips with them in 2013, first to the Dominican Republic and then to Africa. The projects range from assisting with an orphanage to bringing a well to a remote village. “I want to do things that have purpose and make a difference.”

Tom used the situation to find new meaning in his life, striving to make positive choices in his career as he does freelance on-air camera segments and voiceovers with 11 Alive Atlanta & Co. and he emcees various corporate and charitable events. He keeps service to others at the top of his priority list though. “My career has allowed me to do a tremendous amount of charity work for all kinds of organizations. I am so proud of the team

Tom praises the recent changes around Buckhead. “As a native Atlantan, I’ve seen tremendous growth here. Remember when Lenox was an openair mall? I love the beautification project of Peachtree Road through Buckhead … it actually makes sitting in traffic more enjoyable.” Tom can often be found relaxing at Buckhead Diner, and he’s been an avid fan of The Palm restaurant since the day it opened— he recently “earned” a caricature on the wall there.

When not hosting shows and events, Tom is also a skilled photographer and is devoted to healthy living. Last year, he began working with personal trainer and sports nutritionist Scott Cameron of Buckhead Elite Training Studio and learned about their Cryo Elite Therapy. Tom explains, “I began training with Scott twice weekly, garnering knowledge about becoming truly healthy.” Tom credits Dr. Tim Kelly of Buckhead Wellness Center with helping him stay strong too. And, he confesses that most of his grocery budget belongs to Whole Foods on West Paces Ferry Road.

Phillip Ampel

E N T R E P R E N E U R • AU D I O / AU T O M AT I O N E X P E RT • M U S I C L O V E R

tlanta Audio & Automation owner Phillip Ampel has been bringing music into people’s lives for most of his life. Prior to attending Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach, where he earned a degree in aeronautical engineering, Ampel made ends meet working at local concert venues behind the scenes. After college, he went full-time as a show manager for bands like The Four Tops, The Temptations and performers like Whitney Houston as they toured the country. By the early 1990s, though, he’d had enough of the stress and strain of constant travel and decided it was time to settle down in Atlanta. “At the time, home theaters were hitting the scene and were really popular with homeowners. I worked for HiFi Buys for a while, installing high-end custom sound and entertainment systems for their customers and learning the ropes. It was great because I could stop touring and still do what I love.”

Ampel says he enjoys the ambience of Buckhead— especially all the restaurants scattered throughout the area. “If you like pizza, you have to try Antico Pizza Napoletana!” When Ampel isn’t designing a new entertainment system for his clients, he takes a drive on the wild side and goes out on his motorcycle, flies a plane or travels so he can scuba dive. He and his wife, Cheryl, not only run their business together, but are immersed in raising their four children, ages 8 through 22. He finds time to give back to the community, though, and helps out with the Gary Sinese Foundation. “They do good work helping struggling military veterans. Right now we’re installing a cool A/V system in a house that the foundation is custom building for a veteran in Sugarloaf. It feels good to help someone who is so deserving.”

In 1998, Ampel went out on his own and opened Atlanta Audio & Automation, with a showroom in the Perimeter Mall. “We found, though, that because the internet was becoming such a strong influence in people’s lives, we didn’t need a showroom—people didn’t always want to come to the mall. So we bought a house and turned it into our ‘show house.’ That was very successful for about 10 years. Then we decided to find a Buckhead location for our business, since most of our customers told us that they found a kind of comfort in working with a locally owned and operated company.” Hence, the business’s move to Miami Circle in Buckhead in 2014, where they’ve been well received by the community.
