About Nate

Nate is a native New Englander who was born in Rhode Island but moved to Maine before high school. After going to college in New Hampshire and law school in Vermont, he returned to Maine because it’s a great place to raise a family with wonderful cultural resources in the Portland region and great access to a wide variety of outdoor activities. Nate enjoys many of the outdoor activities Maine has to offer, especially biking, cross-country skiing, walking to work and kayaking. Spending most of his free time with his family, they are regular attendees of First Friday Art Walk, the various Portland farmers’ markets  and picking their own fruit at the many “pick-your-own” fruit farms and festivals around Cumberland County.
