Lives In East Bayside
Subjects: People in their environments, food and where it comes from, LOVE, and anything else that emotes. I shoot documentary-style but come from a design background, so I believe in clean lines, symmetry, and visual order.
Born and grew up in Maine, educated in Colorado, and lived in Alaska before moving back to the place I realized was home.
Who are Portlanders you admire and why? I admire all the small business owners here. Without them Portland wouldn't feel like Portland.
Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? The East End Beach and the trails that lead there + and Lila Yoga.
What's the most under-appreciated place or thing in town? Willard beach. Or the wharfs, I like to sit on the docks down there in the summer.
Describe your perfect night—and the following morning—in Portland.
I teach story writing throughout Greater Portland and connect published authors with student writers.
Life is a colorful palette, giving a creative sixth sense to looking at the world around us.
