Welcome to BAiLTIMORE

Hi, I'm Bailey. I'm 26 and a life-long Marylander. I work full-time in Corporate Communications and recently earned my M.A. in Communications from the Johns Hopkins University. 

As a full-time Baltimore resident for the last three years, I've realized that there is a lot to love about Baltimore.  But, sometimes the attributes of this city are lost in stereotypes, crime statistics and the perception that Baltimore is exactly as portrayed on The Wire (no offense, David Simon). 

So I decided to share what I love about Baltimore, from my perspective -- hence the name Bailtimore (get it? Bailey + Baltimore = Bailtimore).

My hope is that this blog reminds Baltimore natives and tourists that this city is a great place. Baltimore has grit, resiliency and diversity - and those are qualities worth celebrating.
