About david kelly

I am an 84 year-old man living in Portland, Maine with my wife of 51 years on a wharf. So my days are accompanied by complaining seagulls and the sounds of a busy port. I love it.

I taught art at the University of Connecticut for 27 years which includes spending 7 years as the Department's head. I retired in 1997 to Maine, "the way life should be" as the Maine Chamber saying goes. I also spent 10 years in the business world In NYC.
