Story by Joshua Keeran


What’s your favorite vacation spot and why? Anywhere, if I am on a cruise ship. We love cruising. When the kids were growing up, Kiawah Island in South Carolina, near Charleston. Perhaps the grandkids will get us back there. It’s a great family spot with beautiful beaches and activities for the kids as well as adults. Love the weekly oyster roast and the ocean air.

Do you consider yourself to have a “green thumb”? I love gardening and really miss my very large garden in Vermont. Our small suburban lots encourages us to have creative solutions for gardening.

Sweet or unsweet tea? Sweet tea. I drink coffee or water if it is going to be unsweet.

What’s your hidden talent? My super power is HandiMan. I have helped build a couple houses with buddies, from clearing the land to shingling the roof, building numerous decks and a myriad of other projects. I wish I had more time for wood working and building projects.

What do you love most about your community? Powell is the greatest place I have lived. My career moved me a lot, and I have lived in five states and over 11 locations. I put Ohio in between each of the states that I have lived in. I have lived on both coasts and New England. Delaware County and Powell have great opportunities for family fun and central Ohio has a great diverse economy. Powell has great amenities, services and parks, and I am very proud or our Veteran’s Memorial. It is clearly the best around and the best of all the places I have lived.
