Artist, Social Conscience

What makes Baltimore my scene?

Never before have I been so warmly embraced by a city than when I filmed my movie in Baltimore. I’ve discovered some great restaurants here, but it’s the great people throughout the city who really make it special. Every neighborhood has its own unique personality. Historic. Artsy. Soulful. Fun. I’ve made friends here that will be a part of my life forever.
