    Currently the Project Controller for HMS Shoreham

    As of next week I'll either be a Production Engineer (playing with military lasers, sensors, cameras and other interesting bit n pieces) or a Business Consultant for an engineering firm (playing with mostly fresh water or pooey water depending on which day it is!)

    I sit at a Cafe and do nothing and only go about once a month. I'm not really sure what my job is. Oh and I get paid $40 for being the king of the trampoline/whatever toy the kids would like to play with for 2 hours.

    Actually I'm collecting data for future alien abductions.

    My employer is quite interested in subjects with poor grammar and lack of vehicular operation skills. These particular subjects tend to not be missed nor believed by anyone.

    My friends and family think that's what I do, and I actually had a guy ask me once if I drew Popeye all day. WTF?

    The glamorous reality is that I'm an Art Director at an ad agency. :twitch:

    Here. I'm just not sure where "here" is.
    I watch sh!t blow up and tell people what crappy shape their houses are in.



    What that translates into is I do vibration monitoring for blasters to ensure that they stay within the legal limits of vibrations set forth by the United States Bureau of Mines. I also perform pre-blast inspections of structures within a specified distance of blasting operations.

    I fly around the world riding my bike in different countries.

    And when I am not doing that I am worldwide business development manager for a processor company.

    Long title, lots of headaches, tons of travel, and all the processors I can eat.

    Hey, do you know "big guy" from Korea? He completely hooked me up with one of the best meals of my life when I was over there.

    I ski, but if I ever decide to buy a board it will be a burton because he was such an awesome host.

    You know all those spoiled brats at the mall by your house? I march them around the deserts of Utah and make them into better people.

    Or, as some have implied, I get paid to undergo therapy.

    Just like Konabumm, I get paid to manage a virtual infrastructures for a living. Until May '08, I'm the senior guy that run a bunch of big iron box for a financial institution. Gotta love ESX! After that, I take the summer off to work as trails specialist for IMBA Canada and our local trail advocacy organism. I've studied infography but never worked in that field.

    @Cross: I worked on a skidoo trail groomer for a while too. A BR-180 is a fun tool. ;)
