As most of you read yesterday, LFB has made some big changes and will be making even more in the months to come. But the first and most exciting order of business is that LFB is adding two more to the team. Therefore, today I thought it would be great to introduce you all to Betti, LFB’s new staff writer, and Mosco, LFB’s official staff photographer, as well.
Hey guys. So I figured I would throw in my profile as well for good measure so that the whole LFB team is represented in this post. I mean you guys already all know me, but what the hell. My name is Rae and I am an American ex-pat who has spent the majority of her adult life abroad living in Berlin. I previously worked full time as a UX/UI designer but am now throwing my heart and soul into creation, reducing my design work in order to run LFB full time and work on jumpstarting my photography career as well. I am a functioning workaholic, but when my fingers are not glued to my camera or keyboard typing 115 GWAM, I can be found cuddling with my kitties, cooking, playing guitar or hanging out with my friends. I am the owner of and creative mind behind LFB, a creative space focused on conscious lifestyle/travel and creativity.
Hey all! I’m Betti Baudelaire, a twenty-something freelance journalist and part-time barista playing at being an adult in Berlin. Pleased to make your acquaintance.
I started out as a music journalist about 12 years ago – it seemed like a good way to impress my peers at school. I spent 10 years writing for local and national publications in my hometown of Cardiff, Wales, before making the move to Berlin and branching out into longform feature writing. I also trained as a dancer, and still fancy myself as a bit of a ballerina despite not attending a single class over the past six years.
I’m super excited to be a part of the LFB team. Rae and I first started communicating via blog comments about three years ago, when I was working on my personal style blog. When I moved to Berlin, we met in person and discovered that we both shared near-identical views on style, ethical living and politics. I can’t wait to be a part of this incredible online space that Rae has created, and will be checking in with my first post very soon!
Hey my name is Mosco and I am visual artist and freelance photographer living and working in Berlin. I’m originally from Rome, but went to university in Florence, where I studied painting before moving back to Rome and then eventually Paris for my photography career. In 2012, I finally ended up in Berlin after hearing that it was the place to be for artists. When I am not working on photography projects, I love to cook (my favorite dish is pasta, of course!), take long walks around the city, and draw and paint. Rae approached me a few months ago about shooting for LFB and we have been working together more regularly ever since. I am really excited to be a part of LFB, as conscious living and environmental consciousness are important to me.

So there you have it!
The expanded LFB family. My hope is that by growing the team and working together, we can make LFB an even more creative space as well as an even more in-depth resource for conscious lifestyle. I am so lucky to have these two amazing individuals working along side with me and I can’t wait for you to get to know them more as well!
