People say if you love what you do, you’ll never work a day in your life. That’s the focus of our latest Golden State series, Out of Office. We follow subjects who have designed their lifestyles—and livelihoods—around the outdoors, and no one typifies that more than spearfisher and commercial diver Brooke Basse. “If I could live underwater, I would,” she told Southbay Magazine in a recent cover story.
