Marissa de Campos

Marissa Simoes is a relative newcomer to Portland.

She is a native New Yorker (and-- shh-- a Jets fan) but recently received her Bachelor's degree in Political Science and English from the University of New England in Biddeford.

Marissa just moved to Portland in September and is out exploring the unfamiliar, but welcoming, city. She says that despite having seen so much of the rest of the world, Portland is among her favorite cities... And, she's happy to now call it home.

She currently works as a Multimedia producer for WCSH 6. But when she's not wearing her producer hat, she's a caffeine addict, travel junkie, adventurer, obsessive blogger, and book lover. 

She hopes that Portland and the rest of Maine will soon forgive her for her choice of sports teams and her New York accent... and someday accept her as one of their own.
