Fun Fact: Maine Focus Media is not located in Maine. We are based outside Philadelphia but founder Benjamin Zaitz (aka Ben/Me/I) was raised midway between Bangor and Bar Harbor, right next to the Lucerne Inn. I got to spend some really important years there, from preschool through high school. It was only upon returning down the road a bit as someone who had spent years in cities that I realized how lucky I was to be raised where I was by the great folks who live there.

I fell in love and got married and became a dad to two daughters. Pretty early on I took her to Maine, and then of course we took them to Maine, and now it is a part of us all. And so it is with great anticipation that w
e look forward to our family tradition of returning to Maine whenever possible.

Annemarie and I met in January 2004 and were married in October 2005. Today, we have two daughters - Adela, almost 13 and Daphne, 10. In addition, we have a dog named Betsy, a spotted salamander named Drexel and three cats: Nora, Winnie, and Blaze. Winnie and Blaze are siblings. Annemarie is a social worker and I'm a marketer and media producer who creates videos for businesses and brands. Thank you for checking us out!

While we love video a lot at Maine Focus Media, we love animals even more. We've had our share over the years and we are currently maintaining three cats, one dog, & a spotted salamander. Meet our gaggle below!
