Searching for Opportunities in Urban Planning and in Community Development

I wear many hats: Artistically, you may know me as a graphic designer, painter and artist. As I’ve grown, I’ve honed my interests and work as a community organizer with the Hyattsville Community Development Corporation and I study City and Regional Planning at Morgan State University, focusing onย Urban Design and Economic Development.

As such, I am eager to get better involved by volunteering, giving, and familiarizing myself with community development organizations and urban planning firms within the City of Baltimore. I’m open to projects like:

  • Community Profiling and Scoping Neighborhood Plans
  • Framing branding statements, promotional text and fliers
  • Database development to help list local resources
  • Research and write historical narratives
  • Site visit and tour neighborhoods
  • Sit on committees and offer insights

I am also on-the-job-hunt! Please contact me if you know of an opportunity that may interest me.

Memberships

I am active in my community on three fronts: volunteering, financial donations, and employed engagement. I give yearly or monthly to the following organizations. They typically fit into these categories: city and regional planning, Judaism, African-American studies, the arts and humanities, and health and wellness.
