I design experiences and objet d'art. As a designer of user experiences for the web, I create a web presence based on user research and over 20 years of experience in the field. I find my interest in design expands beyond that of the 2D into the 3D. I  have worked with a variety of mediums - jewelry and plants being the current forays.

As an owner of a popular Portland teahouse, I have found it to be a user experience as well, for all the senses and a special place unto itself.

Maine as a natural place inspires and rejuvenates. Portland as a city stimulates creativity. All in all a good experience for the user. 

Why did you choose Portland? I went to college here and always loved Portland. When I moved away to CA, I always talked of Portland fondly and raved about it... that's probably why it's so popular today ;)
