Born in Boston during a snow storm in 1948. Not educated at Harvard. Worldly none the less.
I moved to the Rockland, Maine area in 1973 from the Boston area. After 5 years in Rockland I moved to Monhegan Island, (I met an awesome woman who lived there) which was home for 15 years. There I lobster fished, did carpentry, and had a bed and breakfast as well as rental cottages.
From there I moved to Stonington, the wonderful woman then left, and so with nothing better to do I built Old Quarry up from nothing. So I am the creator, owner, and operator of this wonderful little business since 1997. People always ask if I had a vision of this. Well no I did not, it was rather a series of small visions, one laid upon the last. Every year I would try to add something that made sense and so far there have been no major catastrophes (knocking on wood). Funny thing is that I also believe that the business survived all these years in spite of me.
I have to say also that I believe that I was put here to run this business. I feel like this is where I am supposed to be, and doing what I am supposed to be doing. It’s all good and I’m a happy camper.
I hope that my customers will be happy campers as well. We work hard to make that happen.
