I've designed sustainable & affordable housing solutions for people who are housing insecure as well as people who want a low barrier to entry to homeownership. I design and build shelters ranging from 35 - 300 sq ft. The smaller units are designed to be temporary housing to deploy during emergency circumstances, & the larger homes are for families & can sleep up to 6 people. The micro-shelters are constructed with volunteers on a monthly basis at the community tool bank in Pig town. This engages the community, reduces the stigma around homelessness and provides an open discussion about Baltimore's tolerance for people who are living on the street and housing insecure.
I host monthly financial literacy workshops for free for people who are interested in ways to budget, save money, or invest in themselves or their future. I advocate for people experiencing homelessness, fight to address blight and vacancy in Baltimore and advocate for tiny homes. I believe that tiny homes can be an aff...

I host monthly financial literacy workshops for free for people who are interested in ways to budget, save money, or invest in themselves or their future. I advocate for people experiencing homelessness, fight to address blight and vacancy in Baltimore and advocate for tiny homes. I believe that tiny homes can be an affordable housing solution that Baltimore can benefit from. Partnering with organizations like Second Chance and Details Deconstruct to dismantle vacant and abandoned building, and rebuild tiny home communities on existing infrastructure can begin to revive Baltimore landscape, especially since the areas with the most blight are historically redlined. This will help to build these communities back up, provide lower housing prices and easier entry to homeownership for many families that are unable to sustain in Baltimore's current market.
Tiny home communities would also attract tiny home enthusiasts to Baltimore! Historically Baltimore used to have 1.2 million people at its peak, now with less than 650,000, building tiny home communities, and filling vacant lots with tiny homes would increase our population, bring in more jobs and revenue all while addressing blight and making Baltimore Beautiful again.
Ultimately, I want to create an eco-system that everyone can use to their benefit. Tiny home communities throughout Baltimore with urban gardens, small live stock like goats, geese, chicken and bees, which can be used to harvest eggs, milk and honey for the residents and people the community or as a source of revenue. I'm designing these communities to have an onsite community center to be used for events, to conduct meetings for wrap-around services and to host community gatherings. Overall, I want to strengthen the fabric of Baltimore, from the land/communities to jobs.
