I work to feed my hungry neighbors

Job Kitchen Operations Manager / Preble Street's Florence House & Teen Center

Lives In Munjoy Hill

I've run a few of Portland's soup kitchens for about 8 years. I'm a big fan of the community I've built for myself here. I like to race sailboats, swim in the ocean, and make food for friends.

Why did you choose Portland? Ocean! Good food! Great people!

Who are Portlanders you admire and why? I hugely admire all of our volunteers! It's a daily reminder that there are thousands of Portlanders who believe in the work we do.

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? My happy place is out in Casco Bay.

Do you have a serendipity spot? Where do you always bump into good people? Bard!
