Who's Behind the Scenes of EllicottCity.net ?

In 2004, when the concept was put into reality, EllicottCity.net was born with about 30 pages. Since then, the site has grown into a network with over 15, 000 pages dedicated to our local areas and thus, making town's more accessible to everyone with an internet connection.

I am just a bloke from London England, well, South East London to be exact, not too far from Greenwich, where time is run. Originally Born in Tripoli Libya (British Citizen 1969 - the old man used to work for an American Oil Firm) and living in England, Austria (the old lady is from there), Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Oman and having visited Turkey (the boss lady is from here), Holland, Malta, Scotland (Rannoch School, although I was not the brightest spark on the block), Ireland, Iceland, Aruba, St Maartin (click here for gallery), Germany and France, has given me exposure to a wide diversity of cultures, of which I feel very lucky and makes me who I am today.

I came to the US in 2001 as a student in Anne Arundel Community College and completed a degree in Communication Arts Technology, which basically is - graphic design including all forms of multimedia technology.

This truly is a great place to live or visit; the town is very quaint and reminds me of being back in England.

The seasons in Maryland are spectacular and I have a few galleries dedicated to the local area. Local businesses can join the site for as little as $200 per year or more depending on their level of interest in marketing.

Personal Photography - Sint Maarten/St. Martin Gallery 2008
Well what can I say about the Caribbean, very nice place indeed, with warm and completely clear water, nice places to eat and we visited quite afew different beaches. The flight on the other hand was utterly terrifying! We went out over hurricane Ike, and the turbulence was very bad indeed, and there was quite abit of crying and screaming on the flight but we got there in the end. Main Gallery.
