What I love most about my neighborhood
I love the history, the architecture, the harbor, the walk-ability, the neighborhoods, and most importantly I love the people!
What brought me here
I moved to Baltimore in November of 2015 to take a job with the State of Maryland. I had visited Baltimore in 2010 and loved it, and was actively looking for a job here. Moving here was one of the best decisions I ever made.
