Lives In The West End
Why did you choose Portland? We're in the presence of a powerful tide here in Portland. And as a creatively inclined entrepreneur, there's just something about this place that makes it near impossible to leave. I'm quite sure I'm the "enth" person to give you that answer. But that many Portlanders can't be wrong.
Who are Portlanders you admire and why? The boys – and girl – at p3 Maine. No group of people better exemplifies the staying power of Portland creativity than Morgan, Brian, CJ, Nate, Oliva and Chris. They started a grass roots production company right here in town Some years ago, and are not only surviving – they're thriving. It's work like theirs that will continue to establish this great little city as a mecca of creative entrepreneurship.
Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? In the dead of winter it's got to be "The Nick." As a writer who perceives the world narratively, I find no better escape than a solo mission to the coolest theater this side of anywhere.
What's the most surprising thing about this city? The [paper-thin] degrees of separation. This town can connect you to damn well anyone or anyhting on the planet. If you really immerse yourself in Portland – It can give you the world.
What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? Ohno's #1 is more than just the first food item listed on the sandwich board. It is a Higher Power's culinary magnum opus.
