Welcome to découverterre — an exploration of culture, media, aesthetics, and adventures for (and from) the independent spirit. This is my outlet for all things creative. I coined the word ‘découverterre’ as a mash-up of two french words, ‘découvrerte’ (meaning ‘discovered’) and ‘terre’ (meaning ‘earth’). These are my experiences with and explorations into the world around me.
I am a 2010 graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where I majored in History and Human Geography. Following graduation, my boyfriend and I packed up and moved to the Florida Keys, where we live on a boat and hold down day jobs in the service industry. In addition to blogging, I also pursue freelance and creative writing and photography. I am also educating myself on internet and social media marketing, and hope to purse a career in the field when our time in Key West in done.
