The fan-favorite couple from Netflix’s “delicious romp” (Slate) Love Is Blind share their engaging and accessible love advice for the modern world, the ups and downs they’ve experienced during their first years of marriage, and exclusive behind-the-scenes anecdotes from the pods.
When Cameron Hamilton and Lauren Speed locked eyes for the first time, they were already engaged. They had no idea what to expect, having fallen in love across the divider of their pods on the daring Netflix reality show Love Is Blind. While they never expected to find their other half through this experiment, Lauren and Cameron emerged proof of the hypothesis that love is blind.
Now, they’ll take us back to the origins of their whirlwind romance to tell their definitive story. Through alternating points of view, we’ll find out what led them to the show in the first place, how scary it was to bare their souls to faceless strangers on television, and how things shifted—for better and for worse—once the cameras were suddenly off and the rings were on. Lauren and Cameron’s journey together is a modern love story like no other, and their adventure is just beginning.
Cameron Hamilton is a data scientist from Maine who runs his own AI consulting firm Alliance AI. His passion is using technology to improve people’s everyday lives, especially those who suffer from chronic conditions such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s diseases. Some of his past work includes developing systems that reduced money laundering for major banks and improving intervention for patients who suffer from concussions by predicting prognosis while working with Cornell Medicine. Since Love Is Blind, Cameron has collaborated with Lauren on building their catalog of creative ventures, including the launch of their popular YouTube channel Hanging with the Hamiltons.
Lauren Speed is a Detroit-proud content creator and CEO of The Speed Brand, a creative firm in Atlanta that supports artists through digital marketing, art direction, community planning, and various forms of social media. She has spent most of her life in entertainment (her father is the creator of BET’s Video Soul), starting with her successful career as an international model, followed by stints as a radio and TV personality and lifestyle vlogger. Lauren is thrilled to be putting her creative talents to use in the development of new storytelling projects with Cameron.
