THE MATCHMAKER: PAUL CARRICK BRUNSON


The Beginning: Known to many as the “real life Hitch,” Brunson says he's the only black male matchmaker in the U.S., among full-time professionals in the industry. In 2008, he was seeking business advice from a friend and decided to meet up with her at a matchmaking conference. At the time, his day job was working as a financial adviser. He never ended up meeting with his friend, but he did stumble upon an interesting discussion.


“There were about 250 matchmakers from all over the world---all blond women over the age of 40," he says. "It hit me: ‘Black people love too.’ ” Taking notice of the lack of diversity, Brunson decided to tap into a niche of his own.
