We’re Dave & Maura, a couple of creatives currently living in Seattle, WA.
Right now, our plan is simply to write – about anything and everything we find exciting, frustrating, funny, or compelling. We’re thinking of it as a tiny slice of Millennial life, and the perfect way to create something together.
Dave & Maura
Maura (mar-ah) is a social media strategist with an old soul & a taste for adventure. Natural redhead. Some of her favorite things include writing, travel, photography, espresso, backpacking/hiking, biking, yoga, and watching Parks & Rec/The Office/Bob’s Burgers/Brooklyn 99 on an endless loop.
Dave loves film photography, brewing beer, mountain biking, hiking, and backcountry camping. Utah enthusiast (Proof: He’s driven from PA to Utah THREE TIMES, twice solo). By day, he’s a videographer for small businesses and tech startups in Seattle & Pittsburgh.
We may have been brought together by a love of biking, photography, and the outdoors, but we also obsess over backpacking trips, breakfast food, happy hour, and our fur baby Saffron (among plenty of other things). We dance around the kitchen to Jens Lekman and spend our evenings dreaming of where we can go next. So far, we’ve explored Asheville, NC, the Dolly Sods in West Virginia, the backcountry of Canyonlands National Park, spent 2 weeks wandering Amsterdam, Brussels, Brugge, London, and Bath, road-tripped to Washington, D.C, and most recently, picked up our lives and moved to the West Coast. It’s been almost two years since then, and we’re not done dreaming yet 🙂
Why a Blog?
We’re writing this blog first and foremost, as a way to be creative together. Normally, they tell you to “find a niche,” but we’re rejecting that notion. Better done imperfectly than never done at all, so we’re figuring it all out as we go. We need room to evolve and push our boundaries. We want a space to explore our passions and preserve our adventures, wherever they take us.
And perhaps most simply, we created this blog to document our lives and our love After Whitsett.
