Why did you choose Portland? Long story, but Portland sort of chose me! And I'm glad it did.
What do you like to do with out-of-towners? I love seeing the natural beauty of Maine's coastline through the eyes of friends who visit.
Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? The Eastern Prom - ocean swimming in summer; playing sports with my children on the fields high above the water; sledding with them down those great hills in the winter.
Do you have a serendipity spot? Where do you always bump into good people? You can't go wrong at any of Portland's coffee spots.
