Lives In Munjoy Hill

I moved from Philadelphia. Before that I'd been in New York for 10 years. I have been shooting and producing documentary work both for pleasure and profit for over 18 years. I produce  branded documentary video content for corporations, agencies, educational institutions and nonprofit organizations as welll as short and long-form documentary films.  I returned to my roots in New England to enjoy real people and air.

Why did you choose Portland? I wanted palpable change. I'm from Newburyport, MA and I liked knowing people on the street and being able to say hello. I wanted to be around more creatives.

Who are Portlanders you admire and why? I admire Ned from Noyes Storage. I had to move all my stuff in and out of there in a hurry and Ned was a genuinely great and friendly guy. I appreciate his gift for gab.

What do you like to do with out-of-towners? Thus far a trip to the Farmer's market (when it's outside) and Holy Donut has been a pretty popular option. Other than that, a walk on Mackworth seems like a good pursuit.

What's the most surprising thing about this city? How crazy nice it is. The first week I was here a woman in the parking garage attached to TD Bank on Congress thanked me for my smile as I was exiting the lot. Who does that? Amazing.

What's the most under-appreciated place or thing in town? Kim's Bahn-Mi sandwiches.

Describe your perfect night—and the following morning—in Portland. Walking on a moonlit night along the narrow gauge train tracks is pretty nice.
