Why did you choose Portland? Other than a short stint in Ireland for a study abroad, Portland has always been my home. I've found very few places like it and that's just part of why I love it!

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? Food! Bite Into Maine, Bresca, Fore Street, Duckfat… you can't throw a rock without hitting an amazing restaurant in Portland.

Do you have a serendipity spot? Where do you always bump into good people? My wife teases me that I can't go anywhere without running into someone I know… the best is running into a Portlander in Boston or New York.
