Spencer's Portland

What are your three favorite things about Portland?

You can grab a delicious cup of locally roasted coffee, visit any number of museums, galleries   or music venues, eat at a number of world class restaurants and hop in your car and be in beautiful nature within 5 minutes. 

We have so many incredible musicians, talented recording engineers and top notch studios.

It’s big enough such that it has the feel of a larger city and small enough that you can really make a difference if you apply yourself.

What are the three things visitors (and residents) absolutely must see or do while theyre in Portland?

Take the ferry out to Peaks Island, rent a bike and go exploring.

Go see a show at State Theatre. It’s a special place.


When we say "Beyond Words," what comes to your mind first?

The view from the Eastern Prom in the summer.

If you were an item in a hotel, what would you be and why?

A complimentary bottle of water, because people are always like “Oh, thanks for being here. I’m glad to see you and I really need/appreciate you.”

What are you doing when youre not doing what you do?

I am always doing what I do, so that’s what I’m always doing. That or binge watching TV shows on Netflix when I get the chance (like once a year, for three days straight).
