I love this city!

Job Financial analyst / Unum

Lives In The Arts District

I believe the success of Portland (both in the present and future) depends on the success of both small and big business. I am proud to work at a large company that sponsors the Pirates, Red Claws and Sea Dogs. I'm proud to work at a company that supports teachers and the arts all around the city. I'm proud to work at a company that actively encourages employees to volunteer in the community. And I'm proud to work for a company that provides a living for thousands of southern Maine employees who can then get Otto's for dinner, have a drink at Portland Lobster Company, and take in a show at Merrill Auditorium. Whether we work in small or big business, we are all part of Portland and we are all here because we appreciate the people, the culture and the geography around us. 

When I'm not at work I'm reading the Press Herald, playing guitar, or doing a crossword puzzle at Coffee by Design!

Why did you choose Portland? Everyone here is genuine and real. They care about each other. They want to contribute, meaning they want to and value work, but they also take the time to enjoy.

What do you like to do with out-of-towners? Listen to Lyle Divinski on a Sunday afternoon at Portland Lobster Company with a Shipyard Summer.

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? Port Bean cafe.

What's the most surprising thing about this city? There is somehow always more to do or try or explore.

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? Brunch at The Front Room.

What's the most under-appreciated place or thing in town? Public Market House in Monument Square.
