Smart, spontaneous, creative—with a good heart. Bonus points if he’s tall and easy on the eyes. ;)

Adventuring with my kids, work and hanging with amazing friends who inspire me.

What is it like to work in your industry when you currently are searching for love? Do you think your job scares off potential suitors?
Working in my industry is a blast and basically revolves entirely around love, so there’s that. I’m not sure it effects anything—as far as I can tell. I’m exactly where I want to be, and the right person will dig it too. No concerns over here!
