Your Zooties Vapors Staff


Eric “Zootie”

Owner Proprietor
The nickname “Zootie” has an interesting European backstory, but Eric used vaping to quit smoking 5 years ago and has been cigarette free for more than 2 years.  After discovering the joy of product reviews and Vaperz Cloud distribution, he opened his first vape retail store in Paeonian Springs, followed by a second in historic downtown Leesburg Virginia.  Most recently he opened a third shop in Hagerstown Maryland making Zootie’s a multiple state brand.  He is active in the community through advocacy by being the Outreach Coordinator for the SFATA-VA chapter, regularly posting product reviews and hosting an after-hours vapecentric podcast, as well as promoting local community social events.  He is passionate about promoting vaping as a tobacco harm reduction option, helping others discover a smoke-free experience.  Outside of the business, he is a pinball and motorcycle enthusiast and loves hoppy craft beer and live local music.

Bryan is an institution at our Paeonian Springs (Fog Cabin) location.   When he’s not at the vape shop, you can find him shredding the guitar on stage with his band, Digital Collapse.
