Ed grew up in Bangor, Maine, and graduated from Bangor High School. He later graduated from the University of Maine, Orono, and after working for BRS/Nike at what was then their U.S. Manufacturing Headquarters, In Saco, Maine, he started law school, graduating from the University of Maine School of Law in 1984.
