Job Brand Builder / The Brand Company

Lives In Riverton Neighborhood

I grew up in New York City and always thought that I'd move back there ... after all, it is the "center of the universe." But I never expected to fall in love with Portland the way I have. It's been a long affair—have been here since 1988—and over the years I've been a freelance copywriter, creative director at one of Maine's largest ad agencies, an agency owner, and now a brand builder. 

These days I am proud to be part of Maine Media Collective where I am Brand Strategist at The Brand Company where I help clients uncover and tell their unique stories through all kinds of tactics. I also have the pleasure to work with the people behing Maine, Maine Home+Design, and Old Port magazines, Art Collector Maine, and Old Port Gallery... where each day we do our best to shine a very bright light on the creative magic that happens every day... in Portland and all over our state. 

When I'm not behind a keyboard at work, my husband and I spend as much time as we can exploring Portland's killer restaurants, seeing live music, and feeding our renewed love of camping.

Who knew that a boy from NYC who always thought he'd never trust air he couldn't see would have been gob smacked by such an amazing place.
