Departmental training officer/rangemaster/armorer/entry team leader for a medium sized Sheriff's Office. And whatever other hats they hang on me from day to day. The nice thing is that every day brings something new and different, so it's hard to get bored; bad thing is that it sometimes leaves little time for anything else. In that free time, I pursue various hobbies that either take too much time or too much money. *grin*

Assistant Division Commander for the Uniform Patrol Division at the same Sheriff's Office as Ed Wilson. He's my roommate. I outrank him, so he has to do as I say. You know, like "clean the house" or "cook me dinner"... stuff like that.

When I'm not working or telling Ed what to do, I enjoy photography and now videography.

My company ("Famous Davis") is mainly software development for both desktop and web. We do a small amount of video production. I have two employees - my son and my daughter-in-law.

I'm a PIG (Photo Instrumentation Guy) on a missile test range in Huntsville,Alabama. I'm an editor, photographer,videographer and a dangerous self taught electrician. We use a lot of digital high speed cameras which is way cool. I basically get to watch stuff blow up everyday.

I also own and run my own wedding photography and video business that keeps me tied up pretty much every weekend..

I'm a high school media and drama teacher.

So every now and then I get to watch things blow up too.

My day job has changed; I am still a freelance writer, but I no longer teach film. I am now a producer of commercials, and am moving into new territories. Waiting for the strike to end in L.A., so I can perhaps make a move out there.

day jobs and aspirations

For my day job I create educational videos for the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. It's a great job because I'm pretty much a one man band producing, shooting, and editing all the video that appears on the National Arts in Education website http://www.artsedge.kennedy-center.org/ . I meet a lot of cool people and I get to see a lot of performances.

Then on the weekends I grab my gear and shoot shorts. I've done several of the DV Challenges - which has been a great way to get off the couch. And it's inspired me to try to make things that are "festival worthy" though so far no festivals have taken anything.

But I still think, even if I reach the dream point where I'm a regular on the festival circuit and people will give me enough money that I can hire a crew rather than just recruit my untrained friends, I would keep my day job and do the shorts for fun. Because I love my day job and the shorts are a lot of fun. I think if I had the pressure of paying my mortgage off of that work it would take all the fun away. It's the same reason I'll periodically get a booth to sell my photos as art prints at craft fairs, but don't want to try to make a living as a photographer even if I could.

Freelancer (in other words, unemployed)

I'm doing some freelance graphic design (mainly web design) and some freelance News Cameraman work for a small TV station. I'm currently not getting much work for either so I'm looking for something a little more stable/permanent in the Television Production industry.
