Peter has been doing engineering educational outreach since his early college days at Johns Hopkins University. Peter enjoys going out to serve alone, but he also loves to bring his friends along! Peter has many friends across the Baltimore community who join in the outreach. He believes a mosaic team is effective at driving uniquely diverse change. Peter has used his unique gifts and positions to unite a diverse team from across Baltimore. He is an Electrical Engineer based out of Maryland and New England. Peter believes Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is a way to engage and unite employees, and also extend into uniting communities. WBETET is the coalescence of 7 years of outreach in Baltimore. WBETET is an innovative plan to use CSR and social environmental engineering, to create a sustainable business model. We are focused on partnering with local organizations to bring engineering resources into areas of need. WBETET is not a zero sum charity of give and take, it is a revolutionary way to think about receiving more than you put in. Everyone wins!

Our Mission and Plan
We will help unite organizations across Baltimore to bring resources into areas of need.
With a history of partnering with various organizations across Baltimore, we have analyzed what's already out there, and realized there is an opportunity for innovation. We have already successfully launched Corporate Engineering Educational Outreach, and we will extend this partnership with Baltimore Recreation and Parks. We will focus on teaching kids about STEM, by using Art as a means to pique and capture curiosity. There is a volunteering component, and there is also a professional development component. This symbiotically creates a sustainable network of resources. For example, in our Musical Outreach Program, volunteers will teach and mentor kids by showing them how to play an instrument. Then we add an engineering side, where we will demonstrate cutting edge software and hardware that uses machine learning to generate sound and music. Our background in engineering allows us to generate these products, and relate it back to the kid's growth and curiosity. The goal is to partner with volunteers , to bring their talents and passion into the lives of kids in Baltimore.
