We live in Portland, Maine where Catherine works as a public school teacher, and writer, and my partner David works as a social worker in a nonprofit community organization. We have seven amazing kids between us, only two of whom are not full grown. David is also a musician and avid outdoors person; hiking, biking, kayaking. Catherine loves to create, write, and spend time outdoors looking at leaves, snow boarding, or swimming in a lake. We are easy to get along with, love to help out, and look forward to sharing our home and part of the world with you.
