The project was conceived of and is produced by Thom Lieb and Paula Mozen of Towson University. The idea was to combine our students' diverse talents and technical skills in print and video storytelling to create rich multimedia portraits of Baltimore people and places. We later expanded that idea to include photojournalism and broadcast journalism.

The site is envisioned as a living magazine that will be updated with contributions from a wide range of classes and Baltimore residents. Please feel free to send your comments or suggestions to The initial edition of was created by the following team:


Thom Lieb, professor, journalism and New Media, served as producer, project manager and team leader for students in the Writing for New Media class.

Paula Mozen, assistant professor, film, served as producer, design consultant and team leader for students in the Documentary Film and Video class.

Tenney Mason, director of photography at Patuxent Publishing Co., a chain of weekly newspapers that serves a multitude of local communities in the Baltimore/ Washington corridor, served as team leader for students in the Photojournalism class.

John Turner, associate professor, radio, served as team leader for students in the Broadcast Journalism class.


Kelly Janschek designed all aspects of the site and was responsible for putting content online.


Tufail Ahmed is the current webmaster of the site.

Jeff Lee is a doctoral student of Applied Information Technology program at Towson University. He desiged a web management system to make this site dynamic rather than a static HTML pages -- the content should be saved into database and rendering on the fly. Furthermore, the new website system should have multiple functions such as allowing qualified authors to upload their content (audio, picture, movie or slideshow...) and with an approval feature, etc.

Felipe Quiros was the webmaster of the site from 2003 to 2004
