I'll fill it in soon!

Why did you choose Portland? I came to Portland to work with one of the most innovative orchestras in the United States.

What do you like to do with out-of-towners? Eat! I really like to show people the unexpected restaurants here in Portland. I like to surprise people with places like Bou Bou, Boda and Tandem. It's not just lobster rolls up here!

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? Pretty much anywhere within eyeshot of the water. Coming from Texas, it was something I really missed.

What's the most surprising thing about this city? It has to be the culture. It's a bit of shock to get this far outside of a big city and see so many amazing artists and institutions flourishing.

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? I can't say no to a Holy Donut. But then again, I haven't met anyone that can.

Describe your perfect night—and the following morning—in Portland. Drinks at Portland Hunt and Alpine club with my wife Samantha and then off to catch something at Space Gallery or Merrill Auditorium. After that, maybe a little late dinner at Nosh with friends and some tasty breakfast and people watching the following morning at Aurora Provisions to cut through the fog.

Do you have a serendipity spot? Where do you always bump into good people? Anywhere up and down Congress street.
