Lives In Deering Center
As a creative professional I make any vision a realization. My work is focused on people, what they do, what I tell them to do, how they relate to the environment and how no life is a small life. I do this through photography, a means of communicating viusally, what is being examined intellectually.
I am a father of two, I play guitar, sing songs & swim.
Portland, Maine has a wonderful creative community that I feel anyone can enter & grow.
Why did you choose Portland? It's got the vibrance, it's got the music, it's got the every little detail that makes us all want to dance.
Who are Portlanders you admire and why? So many ... Alison Beyea, for her wisdom & spark. Shoshanna White for her dedication to beauty & truth. Sean Wilkenson for his integrity in design, Dave Gutter for his brazen handling of a megaphone. Tom Abercrombie for his pursuit of a perfect beer. Mike Toderico for making great labels. Eric Sokol for the betterment of architecture. My children, of course, for everything they are ... this list would never stop ... ask me sometime.
What do you like to do with out-of-towners? Walk and eat, and shop and swim and drink and dance, and bowl...

I teach story writing throughout Greater Portland and connect published authors with student writers.
