I’ve been in radio in Northern Maine since 1985 AND AGE 19, with a couple of scenic diversions to coastal Maine. I’ve lived in at least a half-dozen Aroostook County communities and currently reside in downtown Presque Isle. My wife Lisa is a consultant for the Maine State Library. My brilliant children are named Marina and Connor. I also enjoy music, art, astronomy, archaeology, appreciation of the natural world and our connection to it, and trying to do my part for fairness and sensible treatment for all living things.
