Lives In Portland
I've taught and mentored middle and high school students in Maine, California, and Washington, DC, since graduating from Davidson College. I also have an MA from Middlebury College's Bread Loaf School of English. I live in Portland with my wife, young son, and our labradoodle, Hazel.
Why did you choose Portland? I came here as a kid to visit family and cried every time I left.
What do you like to do with out-of-towners? Bring snacks and a blanket to the Eastern Prom - and then after an hour or so, remind them that they're in a city.
What's the most surprising thing about this city? Ease of use.
What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? The malted iced coffee/Holy Donut combo at Tandem.
Do you have a serendipity spot? Where do you always bump into good people? Work, Crema, Crooked Mile, SPACE Gallery
My work is with paint as much as it is with the creative minds of Maine's foremost art students.
