I am the Creative Contessa.
My name is Rachel Lorenz. I am deeply in love with learning and creativity. Having lived all around the world for the last 20 years, I have experienced the culture and history of so many different places first-hand. I picked up traditional Korean cuisine and dance during my time living outside of Seoul and Daegu. I lived and worked in Germany for 12 years as a professional translator, where I also delighted in the joys of medieval living history events in castles and other historic sites. I studied at the Universities of Paris, Granada and Heidelberg, steeped in the wisdom of centuries.
Throughout all of this, I’ve pursued all things creative across a wide array of eras and cultures, from art to cooking and dancing, and all the way to historic fashion. And I would like to share that passion, knowledge and joy with you!
