Still actually hiring more for the department. You'll probably still see the ads.

Maybe I should do some reviews, lol...

It's also all about networking, too.

Unfortunately, I spend most of my day sitting at a desk.

But, you are right to some degree. I do occasionally come across some favorite fishing holes, taverns and bird-watching or star-gazing spots.
[No, I ain't telling! So don't ask! ;-)]

My favorite jobs are when I get to help out our Parks Department look over some potential new acquisitions. The real downers are the new sites for giant subdivisions or strip malls. Bleah!

What's your day job?
The wife.
But I was seriously thinking of getting a part time job at a gas station.
How's that?

--------------------------------------
Actually, I write for other people---almost anything (mostly legal stuff), and an article now and then. That and some video or stills along with selling instructional tapes and a book.

I have a degree in watchmaking. I'm currently employed as an aircraft flight instrument technician, repairing the older electromechanical flight instruments used in helicopters. It's a fun gig. There is a shortage of people who can work on the older instruments.

Before that, I worked for a major international jewelry line as a watchmaker in one of their national repair centers.

Martin,

One of my old favorite guitarists of Anthrax, Dan Spitz, left the band in 1995 or so and became a very well-regarded watchmaker. I think he moved from New York to Miami. He recently did a reunion tour with the former singer and bassist of Anthrax, but I believe his passion is now watches.

I am even considering wearing one again after I saw some nice Casios. At any rate, welcome aboard!

I work for a behemoth drug company, responsible for developing new asthma therapies. Been with the company 15 years, 4.5 in the UK and the last 10.5 here in North Carolina. I was attracted here for a number of reasons, including the fantastic diving of the NC coast. I'm also a fully qualified scuba instructor. Above the water, I sing and play guitar (inspired by the likes of Led Zeppelin, Neil Young and others). I've written a few songs along the way.

My software company is a sideline and I've been somewhat taken aback by the number of custom projects I've been asked to do. Strangley, the vast majority are all related to high school athletic events. Since I thoroughly enjoy writing software and videography (esp. under water!), the marriage of the two is very rewarding.

John,

You are one of many fascinating people here at DVi, welcome! And interesting about the asthma stuff--I've been living with it for 28 years now and the newest meds have made me feel better than ever.

Heath,

Your article in this month's "Videomaker" magazine is excellent! Brief, concise, and easy to understand. Congratulations on a job well done.

Mike

Thanks, Mike. It was one of the hardest things I've written because it's "deep tech" and I had to make it easy to understand, even for me, if I were to just pick it up not as a writer, but as a reader.
