Intelligent, handsome and all sorts of other good qualities. I am endlessly entertaining, providing comedic relief and artistic thought in one convenient package. What a catch!
I started a drug company to find treatments for rare and severe diseases. I have spare time, however, and I’m excited to build a relationship and share my life with someone.
