Job Writer

Lives In Back Cove

Born in Philly, moved here in 1990, married a Sanford woman, lived two years in the West End, since '93 in Back Cove. Served time at a now-defunct classical music radio station, and have done writing/marketing/strategy work for 20 years, now. Interested in connecting all of Portland: on-peninsula and off-, older and younger, newbies and vets.

Why did you choose Portland? The perfect size (city) to make a future in. To feel connected to Maine AND to the world beyond.

Who are Portlanders you admire and why? People like Mike Brennan, Michael Bourque, Rachel Talbot-Ross, and Pam Plub, each of whom (and many others) is committed to building a better city.

What do you like to do with out-of-towners? Take 'em to Two Lights. Drive 'em along the Eastern Prom. Show 'em the Art Museum.

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? Back Bay Grill.

What's the most surprising thing about this city? That it stays -- remains -- distinct and distinctive, while so many similarly-sized cities fall prey to conformity or suburbanization.

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? (See above) Back Bay Grill. Having dinner at the bar.

What's the most under-appreciated place or thing in town? (See above)

Do you have a serendipity spot? Where do you always bump into good people? Farmer's Market.
