Through photography, I maintain a deep connection to the everyday citizens of Baltimore. My city is culturally rich, full of people of all colors, from all walks of life. Its important to me that my portfolio reflects the colorful and vibrant diversity of where I live and work.
Baltimore is also home to numerous nonprofit social and charitable organizations of all sizes. So many Baltimoreans are committed to helping others. Their dedication is inspiring, and I support them whenever I can.
EAGER, Inc. (Enhancing Adolescent Girls for an Evolving Resolution) http://www.eagerinc.org. EAGER Inc. was founded by a team of Morgan State University graduates to create a model for young women and teenage girls around Baltimore City through mentoring. I was selected to photograph EAGER mentors and mentees for the organizations tenth anniversary calendar.
Teach for America, Baltimore celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2016. I was one of five photographers selected to document the work of TFA educators in Baltimore for the anniversary gala held at the magnificent Fifth Regiment Armory. www.teachforamerica.org
National Kidney Foundation, Maryland Chapter holds the Greater Baltimore Kidney Walk every year in downtown Baltimore. I photographed the event at M&T Bank Stadium. www.kidneymd.org
The Esperanza Center in Fells Point is a comprehensive immigrant resource center. I helped them photograph their legal clinic where pro bono lawyers helped newly-arrived children unite with families in the US. https://www.catholiccharities-md.org/services/immigration/
