About

Originally from away, but here to stay – Maine is my home and I love writing stories about the people and places from my end of the state. As a teacher and writer who’s seen more than half a century of life, I’m astonished by the people I now call neighbors and friends.

I continue to study and work at my craft and proudly tell my students they too can be a lifelong learner. The world is an amazing place and if you watch, listen and learn, the stories will unfold for you too.

After owning and operating a small data processing and software firm for almost 20 years, I decided to change the direction of my life. With my wife and three children pushing me along, I took a chance. I’ve never been happier.

I must admit, there is another passion in my life and almost every day during the spring, summer, and fall, you’ll find me on my bike. Seeing the state, one pedal stroke at a time, has been a gift, and it gives me time to really understand my little part of the world.
