Here's a Sculpture!

The Kinetic Baltimore Team

Kinetic Baltimore in 2009 had a team of six photographers stationed throughout the race and leaping from site to site in a chaotic logistical ballet in order to provide you thorough details of the race proceedings on this website.

From left to right:

Andy Carruthers: Chief Photographer and Visual Storyteller Extraordinaire.

Amy Swackhamer: (our new member) Head Race Commentator.

Tom Jones Creator of Fine Websites, Maps, Spectator’s Guides, and other Paraphernalia to the Kinetic Trades, and Kinetic Seer #746 ordained by the Glorious Founder, Hobart Brown. Tom was unfortunate to have an extended 4-hospital adventure with Wegener’s Granulomatosis, and was on chemotherapy and lucky to be alive for this year’s race. Tom and the Kinetic Baltimore team were awarded the 2009 Spirit of the Glorious Founder award, a spectacular mirrored glass sculpture trophy.

Johanna Goderre: Director of Benevolence.

Karen Wallace: Supreme Instigator of Kinetic Finery, Mad Haberdasher, and Festivator of the Masses. See her work on

Michael Cooney: Ramp Master and Crowd Wrangler.
