Lives In Windham

 

I make my home just outside of Portland, in Windham. I have live/worked Portland since 2000. It has been quite a fun ride. I have been blessed to have many irons in many different fires; after all, there is a whole lot going on here. I have worked the food scene- being privileged to be a part of some very cool restaurants. I have restored and built many classic and antique wooden boats, and I have gotten to know some of the many amazing people that live/work here. Cheers friends!

Why did you choose Portland? I came to Maine to be an apprentice to a wooden boatbuilder.

Who are Portlanders you admire and why? I admire every entrepreneur that makes it happen here.

What do you like to do with out-of-towners? We eat, drink and go see Portland Head Light.

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? Which one? We are all so spoiled in Portland.

What's the most under-appreciated place or thing in town? All the secret parking that nobody can find but me.

Do you have a serendipity spot? Where do you always bump into good people? Pretty much leaving the house.
