Jeremy "Kipp" & Yesim Clark
Updated August 2008
Welcome to the section where I tell you a wee thing or two about me, where I'm from and what I am trying to accomplish with this website. (picture taken in Paris)

In 2004, when the concept was put into reality, was born with about 30 pages. Since then, the site has grown into a website with over 5,000 pages dedicated to our local area and hundreds of thousands of visitors have chosen peruse the pages to find out more, making the town more accessible to everyone with an internet connection.

I am from London, England, well, South East London to be exact, not too far from Greenwich, where time is run. 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. To show my commitment to the town, I have list attractions, spirituality, and non-profits for free. All other businesses can join the site for as little as $150 per year or more depending on their level of interest in marketing.

Historic Ellicott City has the oldest railroad station in America! At the B&O Railroad Museum's Ellicott City Station now a museum, one is able to see how people traveled in that period and includes a great train set depicting the first laid track miles of the railroad. Discount Coupon - $1.00 discount off your admission please print out the discount voucher and bring it in when you visit them (They are a Sponsor of mine and well worth the visit).

My Goals
I am trying to and bring the whole community closer together through one site to benefit visitors, the locals, and the establishments of Ellicott City, MD. The website has come along quite nicely in the past few years really, which is when I started adding content and trying to convince local businesses to sign up for a minimal fee of $150 per year, which I haven't raised since 2004. Washington Post Article on the best six places to visit.

Donations to and from
I am not a corporation or anything like that, just a local trying to do my part for the town; so donations are greatly appreciated. They allow me to continue updating the content & list events to keep you entertained. So please kick in what you can, and if not, why not suggest to your friends to become a part of the experience, if they have an establishment that they would like for me to feature?
