About the Creator

. . .

My goal is to create a young and engaging place for interested and creative minds to come together.

For you long-time readers of LFB, you will already know who I am. For those of you just popping by for the first time, you won’t. Hi there, my name is Rae. I am an ex-pat from the US living in Berlin and I created LFB (Love from Berlin) back in 2012. Back then, LFB was much more of a hobby managed between graduate course work and – once I graduated – work life.

After working in the Start Up Scene in Berlin as a UX/UI designer, I

decided to place more emphasis on blogging and photography, my other passion. At the end of 2015 in December decided to focus on LFB full time while growing my photography business along side it.

Along the way I grew the LFB team, had guest writers, and began working with my friend Vici to really build the brand. Still, for the most part, LFB was a one-woman show. It has been such an incredible ride turning a passion into a career, and now I am in the stages of expanding LFB further, starting with turning LFB into a blogazine.

In addition to expanding LFB, I’m busy dreaming up creative projects, working on my photography business, skateboarding, and spending time with friends and my boyfriend –

for me the most important aspect when it comes to choosing how I spend my time both on and off the clock is to spend it either tangibly creating the ideas I dream up in my head, or spending quality time with the people I care about doing things I love.

I am happiest when I am able to combine both, as ultimately, in every facet of my life – whether it is on LFB or otherwise – my goal is to create a fresh and engaging space for interested and creative minds to come together.

I have a lot of big goals for where I want to go personally and artistically in 2017 and beyond, and I am excited to share these hopes and dreams with the LFB community.
