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. He lives with his wife and young kids in Portland’s West End. 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.
Nate is President of the Board of Propel, the young members’ group of the Portland Regional Chamber of Commerce.
Nate is a board member of the Maine Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts, and he is on the finance committee of Konbit Sante, which is a Maine-based nonprofit focused on improving health care in Haiti.
