Lives In Falmouth Flats

In 1999 I started a marketing agency in the Old Port. 15+ years later we're still here doing great work from coast to coast. I love Dirigo Design & Development and our wonderfully creative crew. I spend most days looking for innovative ways to make businesses grow and succeed in today’s super-cluttered communications environment. Portland is a terrific place to live and grow in your creative career. I refuse to offshore or outsource work. Instead I hire locals and pay them top dollar so that they can contribute to the success of our thriving Maine community. Portland has been good to me. There is no finer place on earth.

Why did you choose Portland? I visited from California where I lived - fell in love - and moved to Portland. There is no better place on earth to raise a family.

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? Mackworth Island and the East End

What's the most surprising thing about this city? The depth and depth and breadth of its creative community.

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? Food - Five Fifty-Five, Back Bay Grill, Bard Coffee
