For over 15 years, Benny owned and operated Little Gatlinburg, a fine gift and collectible boutique with several locations in the Birmingham, Alabama, area.

Best known for placing Elmo Document Cameras and InFocus Projectors in classrooms, administrators and teachers looked forward to “Mr. Elmo” visits and his innovative enhancements of their teaching processes.
