I like to get creative with words and food.
Job Communications & Design Consultant / M. Bedford Communications
Lives In South Portland
When I had my daughter, Nellie, in early 2014 I decided it was time for a professional refresh. After directing communications and curriculum at two educational non-profits, I was lured by the creative and personal freedom afforded by independent consulting. I now work with businesses, professional individuals, and non-profits to develop their unique brand through strategic communications and consistent, clean design.
I also love to cook, and when I can steal a few free minutes I write about all the good things we get to eat on my blog, megansmark.com. In doing so, I hope to spread the word about our local farms and markets, and inspire more people to get cooking with Maine-sourced ingredients.
Why did you choose Portland? Maine has always been the home my husband and I knew we would return to, but living in Portland has exceeded our expectations. There aren't many places where you can easily access the best parts of a city (great food, arts, events, and diverse community) and also get to a sparkling beach in less than 15 minutes. In Portland, you can.
Who are Portlanders you admire and why? I love Joe Appel's unpretentious, intelligent wine writing for the Portland Press Herald.
What do you like to do with out-of-towners? Eat bagels from Scratch Bakery and go to Scarborough Beach.
What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? A large meatball sub from Sam DiPietro's Market on Cottage Street in South Portland.
I collaborate with students, staff, faculty, and the community to make and keep USM environmentally sustainable
I teach strength, empowerment and self expression through movement with Dance, Buti and Yoga.
Rapper turned teaching artist with the goal of keeping the performing arts alive for the youth of Portland.
