To say that I ambitious is an understatement. I want to learn how to do everything. I want to make all the things. I have endless ideas and overflowing, bottled-up creativity. I also have limited time and even more limited resources. What’s a girl to do? Throw on a pair of boots and head to The Foundery, a Baltimore “maker’s space” offering industrial tool use, workshops, classes, and materials to the average person, like me! (more…)

Baltimore has a reputation when it comes to dirt bikes, and it is not a good one. There are self-proclaimed gangs and urban bike clubs, such as the infamous 12 O’Clock Boys, that take to the streets in mass numbers, riding in and out of traffic, popping wheelies down the busy downtown streets.
