The Story of the Global Creator

global creator

I wasn’t always a travel writer. A traveler, sure. But a writer? A voice in the crowded new media landscape?

I never dreamed of it.

And yet here I am. Speaking to you through these written words.

Créatrice Mondial started as a design-oriented portfolio blog, to travel blog, and now a platform from which I have created and built a travel lifestyle brand, from concept to company. Créatrice Mondial translates from French to “global creator,” which brings us to where we are today…

Through a series of fortunate events and a sh*t ton of hard work, The Global Creator has launched in its newest, most polished state – an online retail store where designer goods + experiential luxury travel combine, fostering a community that’s connected through a mutual passion for seeing this world and an aspiration to shop locally, globally.

Those of you which are long-time readers of this blog here, you know that building connection has always been a foundational cornerstone of my work. The #GlobalCreator community on Instagram has collected more than 4,200 posts from users all over the world, and continues to grow. I personally have seen the transformation of social media contacts into “in real life” friends, and then into a tribe of some of the most support people I could ever hope for.

And for this next chapter, perhaps this film can explain it best:

And guys, the journey really is just beginning.

  • Alana Margaret

    I’ve only found this space recently but I love the idea of a blog and community focused on travel stories instead of “hacks” and “tricks”.

    • Thank you Alana! I have to admit, I’m not that great for hacks or tricks, and I figure there’s so many others out there that can help with that, or you can just google it lol. Now stories, and connecting with a community, that’s something I can feel passionately about! 🙂

  • Congrats on the rebrand. I love the community you’ve built on Instagram and I’m looking forward to seeing the global creator community grow and being part of it!

    • Thanks Jess!! Absolutely love having you as part of the global creator community, and so excited to see where this new direction takes me! 🙂
