Why did you choose Portland? I'm from Maine and was visiting high school friends here during my senior year of college. It was a feeling more than anything else. Just walking down the street I could sense the potential of the place and thought, yeah, I could live here, this would be fun. And I was right.

Who are Portlanders you admire and why? Anyone here who has started and runs a business in Portland - it takes blood, sweat and tears.
