    Default What do you do for a living?

    So, after reading through some of the results for dr.walrus's education poll, it made me curious...(i know, always a dangerous thing ) I know we have a crazy wide array of people here, but I realize I don't really know what most of you do. So, to satisfy my curiosity...

    Major (if in University):
    Current career/job:
    Desired career (realistic; seriously, what is it you are shooting for, if you're not there already):
    Passion (what would you do if money were no object):

    I'll start it off.

    Major: Computer Science
    Current career: Information Security R&D/IT support (side)
    Desired career: Not really sure yet...still looking
    Passion: Unfortunately, not entirely sure on that either, but the closest I can think is if I could have a huge junkyard, a hanger full of tools, and facilities to fab anything I couldn't build (carbon fibre, fibreglass, etc)... Just spend my days tinkering and building interesting stuff.
    That we enjoy great advantages from the inventions of others, we should be glad of an opportunity to serve others by any invention of ours, and this we should do freely and generously.

    Default Re: What do you do for a living?

    Major: None. Mainstream education systems don't work for me. I have many many certifications and specific qualifications.
    Current career: Computer Systems Engineering (I design and build and document new computer builds), pre-sales engineer. (lots more)
    Desired career: Owning a small bakery.
    Passion: Lots. I always seem to have too many passions in life. Keeps me busy, but I don't seem to focus on any one passion.

    Default Re: What do you do for a living?

    Major (if in University):Not currently enrolled (but I have a B.A. in Religion and a M.Div.)
    Current career/job: Stagehand/Tech
    Desired career (realistic; seriously, what is it you are shooting for, if you're not there already): I love my job. I do lighting and audio for various events at the local Arena/Theatre/Convention Center full-time and am the guy that does most of the infrastructure.
    Passion (what would you do if money were no object): I would like to have a workshop in which to putter and tinker with whatever I find that intrigues me - cars, computers, audio, video, etc.

    Default Re: What do you do for a living?

    Major: Music (classical piano), then 2 years of 3D art/animation
    Current career/job: graphics specialist for an environmental consulting firm
    Desired career: working as a professional model builder for film special effects (if anyone from ILM or similar companies sees this, go look at my sandcrawler mod in the WIP section and see if I have what it takes LOL).
    Passion: travel the world with my girlfriend, buy an ultra expensive Fazioli concert grand and play it all the time, and give free reign to my modding impulses. there'd probably be an estate house and a factory 5 GTM in there somewhere too.
