It takes a Renaissance woman to cover the cool, shocking, tasty, and thought provoking things in the Baltimore region and beyond.

Tamar came to Charm City as a child prodigy violinist to study with Daniel Heifetz at the Peabody Conservatory. Musically, she accomplished the gamut from being Concertmistress of the now-defunct Annapolis Theater Orchestra to founding and conducting the Goucher/Johns Hopkins Russian Chorus. However, after earning her BA in Political Science from Goucher, her JD from the University of Baltimore School of Law, and membership in the Maryland Bar, she discovered there was a whole world out there beyond classical music.

Or, perhaps it was when appearing on tv with celebrities such as Bill Maher, Greta Van Susteren, and Peter Frampton. Possibly, it was after she judged the Roadkill Cookoff, the International Water Tasting Fest, or the Mason-Dixon Chef Tournament.

Tamar is a Kentucky Colonel, a beauty pageant winner, and has managed several Southern rock and alt-country bands. She also has a column online, as well as articles of interest to the military.
