About

Fluid Movement works in a truly collaborative fashion with kids and adults, neighborhood organizations, arts groups, and the city to revitalize Baltimore. We hope to reinvigorate our contact with each other through creativity.

Board of Directors

Keri Burneston

Keri Burneston

Founder

Keri is a hardworking acrobat and activist with irrepressible style and a super-hero-like ability to make things fabulous. Keri founded Fluid Movement in 1998 and is responsible for bringing Fluid Movement’s trademark synchronized swimming shows into being. Viewing art as a lifestyle, not an hobby, Keri has become known for her outlandish costumes, created for both performing and street wear, that are a cross between a Surrealist painting and an MGM musical. In addition to performance shenanigans with Fluid Movement, Keri has a fine arts background, is an Open Society Institute Community Fellow and can be found performing as burlesque superhero - Trixie Little.

Amber Eisenmann

Amber Eisenmann

Co-President

Amber likes to do silly things with silly people. She is a proud resident of Abell Avenue (the best street in the best neighborhood in the best city in America!). Every year, she marches with the award-winning Noisemakers in the Charles Village Parade, and her many funky ensembles put the “disco” in the neighborhood’s annual Spaghetti Disco fundraiser. After seeing Fluid Movement’s first water ballet in 1999, Amber knew she had to join the movement. Since then, she has been involved both in sparkly costumes and behind the scenes. Amber is also the coordinator of training and adolescent services at Planned Parenthood of Maryland.

Tim Train

Tim Train

Board Member

Tim’s day job is President and COO of Big Huge Games, a 100-person independent developer located just north of Baltimore. Tim has been lucky enough to work with several legendary game designers in his career, including Sid Meier (Civilization), Brian Reynolds (Rise of Nations), and Ken Rolston (Oblivion). When not trying to help creative types make great art, he can be found playing Ultimate Frisbee, fencing, salsa dancing, poker playing, singing like a crazy man, or debating why Directors Cuts are almost always inferior to theatrical releases.

Noelle moved to Baltimore in 2007 and hopped right on board the fabulous Fluid Movement train. She happily brings with her a background in dance, photography, hooping, and social justice work.
