I am the economy and business reporter for the BDN based in Portland. My early years were spent in the Southern California suburb of Diamond Bar, before coming to Bowdoin College in 2005. I loved Maine and decided to stay.
Through college I wrote as a freelancer for The Times Record in Brunswick, where I later worked as a staff reporter covering Brunswick and towns between Freeport and Wiscasset. I’ve also been a local editor for the formerly AOL-owned network of local news sites at Patch.com, in Diamond Bar. Most recently, I was the online editor for Mainebiz, a statewide business publication based in Portland.
This blog will cover news, trends and insights about Maine’s economy. Send me news tips at dfishell[at]bangordailynews[dot]com and find me on Twitter at @darrenfishell.
